Tilt-shift time-lapse video

If you're not familiar with it, tilt-shift is a selective-focus photographic technique whereby a real city / beach / landscape can be made to look like an incredibly-detailed miniature.

Beached from Keith Loutit on Vimeo.

From looking at it, this technique mainly seems to put the foreground and background of the scene out of focus -- which is a feature of * badly photographed* miniatures, to be sure. Is that all it does? (This month's 'Fine Scale Modeler' carries an article on software that does just the opposite: Takes multiple photos of a miniature [parts of each of which will be out of focus] and combines them into one uniformly focused image.)
