If you are talking about something like the movie A Scanner Darkly you will need After Effects, Illustrator, Photoshop and a ton of time. This is done by rotoscoping (almost if not every) frame. In this film they would draw a mask around every object/person and filling this in with the color that the animator wants to use. Other Masks may (probably will on anything that is complicated like a person) have to be drawn inside the original mask of an object. What I am saying is that even if you have the skill and knowledge to do this you probably don’t have the time as this is just a fantastically huge project. There may be some sort of plug in that is available that automates this but if one does exist the results are probably not that good. Unless it is very expensive that is.
