I don't know about the shoe, but I'm pretty sure all the little rhinos 
are modeled.... ;-)

For "where was the rotation handled?" then I don't know the project, but 
I'd expect most such implementations to just import the image series and 
sequence them in the interactive authoring environment. A 3D tool could 
be useful for generating the images, but it would be rare to use the 3D 
tool for sequencing as well.
