I don't see any "zoom effects." Every shot looks like it's done with a fixed focal length (which may vary from shot to shot but remains fixed within the shot) and any "zooms" are done with camera movements. If you're talking about how the image, especially the background, seems to rotate around the camera in a exaggerated manner (closer at the sides and further away in the center) as the camera pans, that's due to a short focal length (very wide angle). The 35mm equivalent might be around 20mm or less. I've never worked with such short lengths so I couldn't tell you for sure. Those shorter focal lengths tend to exaggerate distance which will give you that effect. Don't get too close to objects, especially people, it tends to distort them.
