This is an in-house animation of a character looking around. It uses a 3D effect created with 2D shapes in Adobe After Effects.
The illusion is created using track mattes and masks, as well as animated shape layers, such as the shadow of the chin moving around to make it look as though the character is animated moving in a 3D space.
