Does anyone know how to make the same type of effect as in the movie "the test". Were the evil twin gets in a running position and just glides right to the camera relly fast. I would also like to know how to acheive the same effect in reverse. Were someone would be at the camera and shot backward. Tutorials would be great, anything steps or the methods of doing this would be great. thanks alot

I'm not exactly sure of the effect, but if you are referring to someone moving, sliding or skating along without actually moving, or rather posed, I know what you mean.
An excellent example of this effect is done over and over in the Japanese cult film 'Tetsou-Ironman'. In that case the effect was further carried out by moving the camera as well. That was done kind like stop motion...the subject was posed 200 feet down the road, a frame or 2 was shot, the subject moved to 190 feet from the camera, same pose, a frame or two was shot, lather rinse repeat. In Ironman there were several shots where the camera was moving along as well, giving the effect of incredible distance travelled in a short amount of time with little or no effort, as if one were skating on the concrete...good flick, very low budget, very very creative. Check it, there's a sequel also called Body-Hammer.

You could use a dolly for the shot. Just place your camera between the dolly tracks, and stand your subject on the dolly. Pull the dolly towards the camera whilst shooting and, bingo!
