Hi guys

When the movie start you see a helicopter shot of the sea going to the coast of Miami Beach, how they do that because i'm explain the shot in the sea but when the shot close to the building that's a zoom movement or what???, maybe a flying cam???, then you see a crane-steady shot of the club thats nice...

Thanks

From what I've been told, the first part of that shot is a few different shots blended together. The majority of the shot was a crane stepoff (the crane was on a boat) with steadicam to the sidewalk and it continues in one shot from there. Does this make sense?
