Creator Meets the Creation Shot Ideas

As for the shot idea,  to my mind, plot suggests camera move here as well .

The idea is  to further  emphasize the relationship between  two characters and embody it via  camera move itself.
From  "aliens point of view" camera moves and stays with main character's "toymakers point of view".
It is only symbolic, camera never moves directly from allien's supposed head, in order to avoid crazy camera  kinetics.

It looks like all is serving to us:  the shot not only concludes the trailer but also ads a dynamic finishing to it.
(  also if you went back to the animatic  and listen to the closing shot sound track, it fits as well :D )
