Dishonored 2 Trailer: Live Action + CGI, or Just CGI?

Alright, I gotta know. Is the live action trailer for Dishonered 2 actually live action + cgi, or is it 100% cgi and should I just give myself over to the computer gods because jfc I can't tell the difference anymore?

Any good books, resources about how they made motion graphics pre-CGI?

I am fascinated by 70s/early 80s motion graphics, most often in the form of TV station bumpers and network identities. A great example is this show reel from 1978. How on earth did they get these effects with (I'm assuming) optical printers and mirrors?

How did Fritz Zwicky appear in Cosmos?

In the last episode of the new Cosmos series, (someone portraying) Fritz Zwicky appears briefly, to sort of stare and blink and then make a gesture like this. He died in 1974. What is the source of this footage? Is it an actor (with an oddly non-speaking role, and no acknowledgment yet on IMDB), some sort of CGI magic from photos, or archival footage? Our household is unreasonably curious about this.

Know a District picture

At the opening of the "Colbert Report" Know a District segments, he uses a a silhouette type of profile of the Congressperson about to be introduced. The person is blanked (blacked out) but the background is still featured. The background is usually of that used for their official office photo. So. How does one create a picture like this?

Seeking documentaries about digital art

I am looking for some good documentaries about digital art. What do you recommend? Biographical movies about artists that make art with PhotoShop would be great. Movies about the history of CGI would be fascinating. Documentaries about art made for the internet could also be fun to see. Any suggestions would be most appreciated.

What is this type of 3D shader / renderer called?

I'm looking for a type of 3D shader / renderer for which I've seen a number of demos. Most featured many objects (in the hundreds), often in greyscale, often with many of the objects acting as light sources. The quality of the renderings is very high, with a beautiful, soft chiaroscuro effect. I have a feeling the technique starts with an 'S'. Any ideas, hive mind?

3D animation CGI advice?

So, basically, I want to know what the various options are for CGI/3D animation software. Factors to consider are, price, ease of use/learning curve required, system(s) required and so on. I know I'm being vague, but I really just want to know what the various options are. For instance, I have dabbled a very little bit with Blender, but found it beyond arcane and hard to use. Any help would be appreciated.

Name That Video: Surreal animated interview between student and master.

Looking for a video I saw on the internet before May 2008. It was an interview with a ton of post-processing, making it very surreal. Seeing this image reminded me of the video. I seem to remember the interviewer was an art student, or a student of the interviewee. The interviewee had been down on his luck, and it seemed as if the interview was happening in a soup kitchen or hostel. I associate two words with the interviewee: "video art", but I can't think of any sort of title he might have. [more inside]
