Indentation and an example.
* The opening scene of ''Franchise/StarWars: Film/ANewHope'' does this. First the Princess' ship goes overhead, everything is normal. Then the Star Destroyer starts to slowly go overhead... and goes... and goes and you realize that the ship is HUGE. At this point, if you were first watching it in 1977 when it came out, you suddenly realized how awesome this movie was going to be. Differs from the others in that the Star Destroyer enters (and enters and enters!) as opposed to the camera zooming out. ** Parodied, of course, in ''Film/{{Spaceballs}}''. ** Used brilliantly again in ''Film/TheEmpireStrikesBack'' when early in the movie, the Star Destoyers are shown again in their majestic glory when all of a sudden they start getting eclipsed by something. The audience is keenly aware that something ''massive'' is above these things we were so in awe of in the first movie. The camera switches to a lower angle pointing upwards as a Star Destroyer looks so small compared to the ship above where just a portion of it fills the scene. Then, the camera reveals in all its glory Vader's new flagship, the ''Executor'', a Super Star Destroyer that makes very other ship look like an insect.

This leads to the decision that "the garbage will do", with the camera panning to reveal to the audience that the aforementionned piece of junk happens to be the ''Millennium Falcon''.

* On an episode of ''WesternAnimation/{{SpongeBob SquarePants}}'', the group is supposedly sent home from the grasp of the Flying Dutchman. The camera pans out from SpongeBob's pineapple house only to reveal that it's a ''real'' pineapple, and they're all inside a giant blender.
