My guess is this was shot


My guess is this was shot using some kind of camera stabilizer such as a Glidecam or a Flycam or Steadicam.  It looks to me like the shot was just a 'walk by' passing the flowers laying on the beach, But I think the zoom effect you talk about is due to the motion being 'sped-up' in post production at the point where the camera is closest to the flowers, then the speed was dialed back to 'normal' as the camera moves away.  That's my guess anyhow.
