If you’re interested in cinematography, then you’ve probably heard of the Dolly Zoom. This is a shot where the camera slides backwards while zooming in on the subject or vice versa.

    It was first used in Alfred Hitchcock’s film, Vertigo. Over the years, it has become a bit of a cliché, but there are times in a film when it is completely necessary to use this movement.

    This video will give you some context on when to use it and what it will say in your story. Watch how creative cinematography can influence your story!
