I am shooting a waterfront hotel and the client requested a technique seen on the homepage of this site:

Thanks!!

    Wide angle, video. Looks to be somewhere between 14 and 24mm in the various shots. Looped in a video application. Each video seems to be about 10-25 seconds long and played back either faster or slower than normal.

    Really not a lot to it...

    Some of the segments appear to be using selective motion and still images.

    One way to accomplish this is to "grab" a still frame for the upper layer, then create a transparent region to reveal a moving video beneath. The segment with moving flames in the fireplace but motionless waves in the background, is one example of this effect.
