Thanks Ron. So nice of you to leave a comment. To answer your question Ron, I did the graphic transformation in After Effects. First I downloaded the footage and then applied a special 'cartoon effect' in After Effects. The calibration options are endless, so I fiddled with them for a bit until I was more or less satisfied.

I then took screen shots of specific frames to create my comic story and concluded with a bit of footage to showcase the 'kiss'. I also had a bit of fun creating the trailer notice.
