I thought this is a very clever bit of work…
Now if I was to think about reverse engineering it, I’d probably capture some video footage of real people sitting on a couch. Wing it on over into After Effects, and cut it up into small chapters, and apply some form of “toon render/filter” to video footage. Then export it as a .Mov or even a sequence of frames into flash, and jump about the timeline based on mouse location.
The filesize is amazing, 750k or so, and thats including sound.
Apart from actually drawing the stuff out by hand, can anyone think of other ways to achieve the same effect, and maintain small filesizes?
