Better free software is available since this video was made, but here's a proof of concept to get you started. Yes, you can do a better job with money but THIS was made using all free programs, with links available for download in the description.
A creative way to grab a mesh from video using free camera tracking software. This is normally used to add 3D images to video, but it can also obtain them. With this dramatic look at video editing, we can even mod YouTube clips! If the camera is moving, 3D data is scraped right off the screen. This tutorial explains how to scan, interpolate or otherwise recognize a 3D mesh from a short video clip using Blender. First we capture the points using voodoo, then we import into blender and shrinkwrap a mesh onto the captured points. The result is a crude 3D model of a real world object or person.
Corrections: I forgot to tell you to click on "Rem Double" to remove duplicate vertices.
Master the matrix. Why build a 3D scanner when we already have one!

--music software used--
I recorded all of my improvised "background music" "live" during a solo jam session with the KORG Karma keyboard and playing along with myself, using heavily modified Generated Effects (also produced with the same keyboard). KORG places no restrictions on the music made with their keyboard software. This keyboard has been used by the likes of Pete Townshend, Peter Gabriel, and myself to create complex, professional-sounding music, but in this case I just used it to throw together a quick background track. I made this background track specifically for this video. It does not appear on my CD or website.
If you would like to hear even better music from me, complete with vocals and even some home-made instruments, check out my CD.
I recorded my performance at 48,000KHz using the open-source Audacity multi-track recorder software. I used the open-source gtk-recordmydesktop for the screen captures and voice narration. Then I mixed them into a .wav file using Audacity. I down-sampled it to 44.1KHz for the video using the free and open-source avidemux software video encoder which uses the free and open-source ffmpeg video codec.

My camera, a cheap GE E-850 8.0 megapixel, needs updating, badly.
