    Link: Bathtub IV - Sweet Timelapse - This is all 100% `real,` but there are some new techniques and a cool animated, 3-D effect.

    VV I think they meant their photography techniques produce an animated effect (i.e. it looks animated).

    It`s called "tilt shifting"

    there`s a technique used to get that miniature effect.

    I read about it here :p

    i agree with the "some water is blue" perspective. the greeness is from an abundance of algae. theres less algae in some places

    Getting the appearance of them being tiny figurines is easy: boost the contrast/vibrancy and blur the foreground and background a little, but leave the middleground in focus.

    Holy crap, it IS real footage! It had me completely fooled. Just watched it on HD and the detail is too great to be anything other.

    Oh yeah, and I went to the artist`s site as well, he`s got a whole bunch of similar videos.

    I wasn`t really impressed with the video (though the technology was impressive) until the guy gets rescued and hugs his kids. It is amazing how much the human factor can distract from the pure beauty of a scene, and at the same time be wholly beautiful by itself.

    This isn`t a difficult effect to create.

    A mixture of a low framerate and the technique of blurring specific points to create a "fake/toy" look is a rather old concept.

    I did the same thing as a project in college back in 2002.
