Recreating RSA Animate

I've recently been approached with a request to make a "RSA Animate"-type short. In my meeting last night, the client showed this example:

I'm fascinated by stop-motion/digital hybrids, and trying to figure out what is "faked" and what is real. This one for sure has me scratching my head. Is it a real whiteboard? How did they light it? Is it done in sections or as a whole with a camera moving as he drew? Is it all digital and they fake the drop shadow? Does any of this matter as long as my solution gets them the same end result? That seems to be the point, ultimately. Get them the result, stay on budget.
I'm going to do some tests over this weekend, with the goal to be to post my process here. Wish me luck!
