Dave Hill effect on video? How did they do it! Link inside!

Hey everyone! First time post but long time lurker!

I came across this Asher Roth video where they used the Dave Hill Effect in it (well, kind of). I think the hardcore photographers would say that this was a poor attempt, however...to apply this to moving subjects seems rather difficult.







Does anyone know how they did it?

I know how to do it in photoshop and lightroom, but you cannot use fill light and high pass filters in After Effects.

Help!!!

A search of the Adobe After Effects forum using the search term "Dave Hill" results in the following:

Well, you've noticed that the topic hasn't even been mentioned in an AE forum for five years. That ought to tell you something. And unless you know otherwise, there's a good chance the effects in that music video weren't even done using AE.

However, I do recall seeing someone's Photoshop recipe for the Dave Hill effect way back when. You might have to pull this off in Photoshop.

Maltaanon described a couple methods for high pass in AE [link].

I'm not sure about the math behind fill light, but you might be able to replicate it with some clever curves adjustments or some combination of luma matting and effects or transfer modes.
