At the end of this vid he does a very fast strumming. The camera is not very good, and it's impossible to see how he's doing this strumming. If any1 has any idea, please explain how to achieve this strum, or if any1 knows of a youtube video that explains it slowly so I can learn it, I would be very appreciative. Thank you!
I'm just guessing, but it looks like he's doing really fast hammer-ons and pull-offs with his right hand an octave above what he left is holding.

He is strumming with all of his fingers with the hand above the neck. Think like almost a bassist's positioning but looser.

hes using each finger to flick across the strings, times four makes this very fast strumming.

also, http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8KX1dmhLiMo around 1:30, might be relevant to your interests.

EDIT: the strumming section you want is actually around 3:30. but the rest is also interesting.

I can't imagine anything worse than shagging to Mark Knopfler.

Maybe shagging Mark Knopfler, but that's about it.
