I came across this video on the front page of Youtube today. I'm not particularly impressed with the content of the video itself, but a 'scene' caught my eye. At 0:12 to 0:14 seconds, there is this distinct 3D look, as if the girls have frozen in time while we look through the room at different angles.
For example, one girl is mid-air and another has her hair sticking up all whilst the camera pans the room. There is a similar scene afterward at 0:18 to 0:20 seconds, where the girls look frozen (but the objects in the room are moving in slow mo) while the camera pans the room quickly.
Does anyone know or have any idea of how they created this 3D effect? I've been stabbing guesses here and there but I've honestly gone nowhere. I guess I don't really have an eye for these sort of things, so if anyone can lead me in the right direction, I'd be oh so thankful.

Thread: How to get this 3D video look?
It isn't playing smooth enough for me to be sure but it looks like two different techniques.
Simply shooting the same thing from different angles. This is clearly the case for the close ups and maybe for all of it.
They may have used Bullet Time as well. Multiple still and video cameras in a frame and with computer controlled shutters. Been around since the Matrix.
Edited because I was too lazy to preview. Some savings in time that was.
I've been interested in the frozen motion effect ever since I saw this video:
I always just knew it as "2.5D animation," so it's good to have an idea of how it's actually done. Thanks Ethlred!
These techniques have been discussed here and other websites . Use search terms like "philips carosel effect", "matrix effect", "bullet time", "the other guys effect", "camera mapping", "projection mapping" if you want more info . These are all variations of a similar technique
1st one was done with multiple cameras. You can tell because the camera angle and exposure changes during the resume phase of normal motion. Some of the contents are composited back in afterwards in the other shots
Here are some relevant discussions
2nd one is 2.5d using camera projection, but with multiple stills. (you are limited to the degrees of rotation with camera projection, especially on a face. It's easier to do with building and cubes, ie. geometry with 90 degree angles) . It's actually easier to do in a 3d program, where you project onto 3d geometry. He cleverly used the motion ramping of the camera to disguise this (notice he skips the 90 degree rotation around the face to the side view, it's done in discrete increments)
I like these Asian-made music videos. They really know how to throw the bling and "hoovers".
This one is good too. Disregard the guy yapping at the beginning.
Here's another one:
