This is "Cosmic Cartoon" (full length with original musical score composed by Len Scaffidi) an animated short made by by Steven Lisberger and Eric Ladd while attended the School of the Boston Museum of Fine Arts.It premiered at the Orson Welles Cinema and went on to recieved a Student Academy Award nomination in 1973. The first sequence of the Hearst Castle was rotoscoped from Steven Lisberger's film and animated in Cosmic Cartoon. Lisberger did much of the matte painting, figure rotoscoping and airbrush painting, and Eric Ladd did the Earth rotation animation. The video was probably taken from a VHS copy of "Fantastic Animation Festival" but I'm not sure. Steven Lisberger went on to write and direct Tron.
