Are there zoom rigs that I should be looking into? I've never done a zooming shot before. Here's the shot in Panic Room that this is based off of: (skip to 3:04)

The remote for the follow focus isn't really the best for slow zooms. A zoom control is better because it takes the guess work out of speed, you can set it for any speed and just hold the trigger and it will repeat the speed every time, or you can ramp speed etc.
Were you talking about pulling back while you zoom out, or push/zoom-in? I don't remember the film much.
You can do it with the remote FF but it might not really be ideal.

The focus motor should work fine. It's a lot easier than using a microforce,
