What's cool about this video is that it looks completely fake. But these aren't miniature toy soldier models in an animated short. This real-life video captures soldiers parading around Paris, France. Four cameras were used that day, however most of the footage is from two they had on top of a building on the Champs Élysées. The "Toy Effect" comes mostly from the use of tilt-shift lenses. Camera position, frame rate, and lighting conditions play a big role as well.
