Vertigo Effect

I have just finished the storyboarding course at CGMA. It was very good. (I intend to do a review post in the near future). I'm currently cleaning up a pretty extensive storyboard sequence of a little boy going off a very high diving board I did for the course.

When I needed to add a pov shot of the boy looking down from the diving board I realized that it would be cool to have a vertigo effect shot. This is one of those things you've seen a thousand times in films and tv shows but when you have to board it it's quite a challenge. I did some research on the actual effect (also known as Dolly Zoom) and this is the result.

It's best viewed by clicking the first image and moving through the image in the lightbox picture viewer.
