Dice animation

For those of you who haven't seen this yet, especially those of you who play RPGs and thus likely have a bucket o' dice around:

(way-cool animation, fair-to-middlin' music)

From what I can pick up, the animation really was done frame by frame with real dice, but for the zoomed-out shots that are near photo-realistic, it looks to me like they might've used one of those image-to-ASCII art conversion tools or something similar during the planning stages to do the grunt work of choosing how many pips each die should show.

Anyway, enjoy.
