How to achive this (depth and 3d like effect)


Can someone who knows a lot about animation check this out:
It is an flash intro template and i would like to know how did autor get such nice result. I am talking about part where it says Artistic Works or Unusual Impression.

I would like to know how to achive such depth (3d feel) with a picture and than how to rotate it like that. I tryed papervision 3d and virtual camera and timeline animation and i can not achive result that is even close to this. What is the catch. Are there any outside programs used ( after effects or something like that). Please if you knw let me know.
