I don't know if this question hs already been asked, but here goes anyway. I just saw Zodiac and loved the shot where the camera tilts up from the bottom of a building that being built, and as it does, all the scaffolding etc moves. It looks like a simple time lapse shot, but surely they didn't leave a camera there long enough to catch it. Any ideas?

But yes, normally you'd have to leave the camera out there for the duration in order for the framing to stay constant (and a tilt-up or down, or a pan, would require a complex motion control rig, or simply careful camera movements if it didn't have to be smooth. It's a little like stop-motion photography.)
Nowadays, though, someone probably would use a digital still camera with a high resolution, and if the camera was brought out there once a day, a picture taken, and removed again, so the framing wasn't precise, it probably could be realigned in post by zooming into the photo a little.
