You could use Director for this by importing flat images into
a Shockwave 3D world and then positioning them, setting lighting,
setting up the camera, etc. Using behaviors you could add
interactivity too, so the user could walk through the scene. Since
the images are flat they would look like cardboard cutouts, but
thet seems to be the look of that video. I hope that helps.
It looks to me like it was done in Google Sketchup. They have
2d people in there that look like the one in the video, and the
camera movements look like Sketchup animation. The textures look
like photos/hand drawn that were scanned & applied, & the
materials made transparent. It's a really simple program to learn,
tons of documentation & tutorials, and it's free. You have to
pay for the pro version, which is what I use, but you could
definitely create this video using the free version.
