Final Edit :D


This is a clip that was produced in the days in which we were just learning how to use programs like final cut pro and getting the hang on how to edit, add fonts and sound, as you can view this clip does not represent any of the key features of the main type of elements needed to produce a well presented clip.

ZoomTechnically this isn't a camera move, but a change in the lens focal length with gives the illusion of moving the camera closer or further away.
