madness, love the effect, is it that solarise effect?

That was not rotoscoped at all, it was a cheap AE filter at best.

Looks like a photoshop's sumi-e or smudge stick effects.

OK, I'll admit I'm not artsy enough to know the difference between Photoshop blur effects and well-crafted rotoscoping . . . and I don't care right now. Between the images and the music, it was enchanting.

Looks like a mix of roto and image processing. The software they used is Studio Artist, found here: http://www.synthetik.com/

You can even download a limited feature demo.

Regardless of technique, the result is beautiful.

piqued my interest....I'll have to look out for it when it comes to the east coast.

wow. I loved the music, and the effect was, well, effective.

I don't care how it was done. If Ze likes it, so do I.

hauntingly beautiful -

The effect I think looks like they just dropped some of the color detail - all the subtle shading is gone and - like dropping a photo from 24bit color to say 256 colors.

Good Find.

Wonderful! I can't wait to see it.
