    I just saw a few videos using this technique of animation and I thought I would look into how its done.  It seems that there are two main ways of creating a pixilation.  The first way is to arrange your subjects and photograph them, them move them and photograph them, sort of like stop-motion with real people.  The other way is to take a video and then in post remove individual frames to achieve the same look.  It is cool because you can manipulate the shots to make it seem like people are flying above the ground by filming them jumping at the camera and then take out all the shots of them except the ones when they are in the air.  This is one example of many effects you can achieve by using pixilation.  Below are a few examples that I found of this technique.
