Fake Depth of Field

Here is how I faked Depth of Field in my animation. Since I won't be rendering it I'll just comp layers into Aftereffects.
1) Here is Leo jumping on a building.
2) Here is an antenna model I built that will zoom in  front of the camera during the action. I created a sequence with a bluescreen to key out.
 3) And the result is just a layer with Gaussian blur over the top. I will use this technique several times in this short. Simple but effective.
