I know you seen some of the movies that have a scene going then the lead will snap his fingers and everyone but him will talk and he will walk up to the camera and speak a monologue. I always have wondered how they do that. Green screen? Camera tricks?

Thanks for your time.

I'm sure it can be done in a variety of ways, but the easiest way is just to have all your actors freeze on cue.

That's the old theatre trick. It's cheaper than fancy matting techniques, too.
