I have downloaded an android app called Paper Camera that provides real time camera filters such as a variety of 'sketch' and cartoony feels. I find especially interesting their filters 'Contour', which is pretty much B&W contour lines, and 'Sketch Up' which looks like a rough pencil drawing.

What kind of software and what filters could I use to apply similar effects to an already recorded video file?

I'm not sure how that second question is related, other than also being about an Android tablet. If it isn't, it'd fit better as a second question, so that we aren't doubling up on questions and answers. – Warrior Bob Dec 11 '11 at 18:00
Yeah I was thinking about doing just that. Thanks!… – Vic Goldfeld Dec 11 '11 at 18:44

Adobe Premiere should do exactly what you want - it has a ton of effects plugins.

As to your second question, any screen grabber video software should let you do this - you play the video and have your wacom sketch overlay running, and just use the screen grabber software to make a video of everything displayed on the screen.

I made a separate question for the second inquiry. – Vic Goldfeld Dec 11 '11 at 18:44
Would Adobe Premiere Elements also offer me such plugins? – Vic Goldfeld Dec 11 '11 at 18:50
I haven't tried Elements, but a quick google comes up with some plugins which appear to do 'sketch' type effects. – Dr Mayhem Dec 12 '11 at 8:49
