Animate scrolling list of names with automatic scaling of center name

Hi everyone!

I want to animate a list of names, like the contacts list in your phone. I wanted to animate an up and down swipe motion (which is not that much of a big deal) but in the middle of the screen, in the center of attention, the names are supposed to stand out and basically scale up. That would be a pain in the .... to to buy hand and should be automated/scripted (big deal) but I don't even know how to approach this.

Can someone of you get me on the right track with this?

Thanks very much in advance!

The "OSX dock scale" effect is a good starting point. I think this approach will get you there or close it if you change the mouse position to be the center of the comp coordinates.
