Added DiffLines:

* In ''Film/{{Innerspace}}'', after Scrimshaw and Canker are shrunk 50%, there are a few scenes where they are seen with full-size actors. These shots were filmed using forced perspective. For the car scene, the rear of the car is actually twice as large as a normal car rear, and was about 20 feet away. During the scene half size hands and double-size heads were used. Using this method, the film makers didn't have to worry about compositing two separate shots in post production, so the shots could be completed quicker. Even in the final scene with the suitcase, the case was twice as large, but the hand that closes it was real, closer to the camera in sync with the closing.

* A variation was used on ''Film/StandByMe'' when the boys are trying to outrun a train on a bridge. A telephoto lens was used to compress the depth of the shot and make the train seem like it was barreling in on them, when it was actually a safe distance away.

->'''Peter Griffin''': Oh, my God, is that... Are you holding up the whole Hollywood sign? \\
'''Derek Wilcox''': ''[Chuckles]'' No, no, no, no. The sign was way in the background. I was standing in the foreground going like this when Jillian took the picture, so by forced perspective, it looks like I'm holding up the whole sign.\\
'''Peter Griffin''': I don't believe you. I think you are a God. And I will die for you or kill others.

* ''Film/HellboyIITheGoldenArmy'' used such shots frequently. The alleys int he underground market were designed with the diminishing height trick to make them look longer, and the shot of the intricate "egg" opening in the elven prince's hand is actually a mechanical puppet the size of a trash can in a set of model fingertips, with the actor acting about ten feet further in the background.

* There are no special effects in the above shot from ''Film/CloseEncountersOfTheThirdKind''. It's simply a forced-perspective trick achieved by placing a model ship next to the camera.

* ''VideoGame/DonkeyKongCountry 2'' shows what appears to be Donkey Kong Island from the first game way in the background of K. Rool Keep. However, it turns out to be Klubba's Kiosk, which you can easily access ''right there''.
