* ''Film/HoopDreams'' is mostly live-action but uses this trope occasionally, such as when the camera zooms in on SpinningPaper news articles or when it zooms in on Arthur's middle-school yearbook photo.

* Still pictures and this trope are used in ''Film/TheLifeAndTimesOfJudgeRoyBean'' for a comic TimePassesMontage, which shows Roy's posse doing stuff like catching a bad guy in an outhouse and catching another bad guy seemingly about to [[BestialityIsDepraved violate a sheep]].

* Similar to the Sadie Thompson example above, many official and fan-made reconstructions of missing Series/DoctorWho episodes use this technique on set photos and sceencaps (alongside clips from existing episodes, CGI, and composited images) timed to the existing audio.

Also known as "kinestasis", the Ken Burns Effect is a camera technique that allows the filmmaker to retain some visual interest when all there is to work with is a static image. The camera focuses on part of the image, then slowly pans over it, optionally zooming slowly in or out as it does so. This can be used to slowly reveal details in the case of panning or zooming out, or focusing attention on specific details in the case of zooming in.
