Hello to you all!

I am trying to figure out how to do fast paced collage video like in this music video at 1:46 (

The only way that i have thought of is by manualy freeze framing mouth every few frames and playing with opacity and wiggle of the masked textures but that would take forever. Any ideas how to speed up the process?

Well, you could TRY Rotobrush to isolate the lips, but here are two warnings:
1) Don't try to use Rotobrush intuitively. You'll fail. Look for "Rotobrush resources" in AE Help for tutorials.

2) I don't know how well it would work. Got lots of colorful lipstick on those lips? You stand a good chance.

Depending on how long the video you're trying to create is, you can try to Roto it and add a wiggle with along with using the "Posterize Time" effect to force a slower frame rate, that'll get you that freeze frame feeling. Basically it's decide to play every 3rd or 4th frame.
