its called "stop frame animation" - its not software driven, its an in-camera effect created by shooting sequences of thousands of still frames, and moving slightly between each frame.
Thats how you get her clothing to be animated as well as her hair.
It also helps to photograph a pin sharp image on every frame without motion blur.

To replicate a similar effect in video, i would remove every other frame, and then duplicate every frame that is remaining. Traditional animation is often done using "doubles" ie, for every frame they shoot two images, which is what gives the animation its staccato appearance.

Yeap.
Speed up the footage 200%, then slow down to 50% without frame blending.

This is what the "strobe" effect is for. Just apply and it freezes every x frame for x frames. If it's set to 4 for example, it plays frame 1 four times, then frame 5 four times, etc.

Ha Ha, static, bars and tone at the end. And it's all Jelly Belly's.

Is this done with multiple layers? In the beginning when she is walking past the trees, the foreground trees move by faster than the background trees as they would in real life. It seems like it would be quite time consuming to create that 3d effect without a separate layer for the tree going by. It looked like one layer to me...

That's not what I meant, I was thinking it's pretty impressive to pull off. Painstakingly moving one by one in a single layer. I had fun watching it, so the artist did a good job...

I would be less impressed if it was layers.

This is straight up animation. Take a picture...move...take a picture...move...take a picture...move.

All done in camera on set. All practical.

There's a link to the making of video when it's finished. It's a good watch. The first 20 seconds pretty much answers all the questions.

It is fast. You use multiple layers in After Effects (for example) and then place them in z-space and then move a camera right to left.

Watch the "making of" video and you'll see what's involved:

22 months
1,357 hours
30 people
2 ladders
1 still camera
288,000 jelly beans

There wouldn't have been any jellybeans left at the end if I was on set.

Carps, I just saw the "making of".
I thought was done with chroma-key and some funny graphics effects.
Amazing.
