Hi,

There's a dolly move that I've done before but i haven't done it in so long I can' remember what it's called and it's killing me.

It's where the camera/dolly moves to the left and the actor (on the other side of the dolly track) moves to the right (or vice versa and essentially the dolly and actor switch spots). So at the start of the move the actor is framed camera left and at the end he's camera frame right. So in other words, in this dolly move you don't notice the actual move as much because your eyes (as the viewer) are focused on the actor moving.

Might you be talking about a "counter" dolly move?
