Ghostly images in a glidecam shot
Posted 16 May 2007 - 02:07 PM
I'm shooting a short film on DVX100B. There's this glidecam shot during the day that travels from the living room to the bedroom. In the bedroom, there's a kid running around but he's sort like a ghost, a fading image. If this would have been a still shot, I could just shoot two seperate scenes - one without the kid and the other with the kid - and blend them together and adjust the opacity in post. But since this is moving shot, I could never achieve the same move if I do two takes. Is green screen the only way to do it? Unfortunately, I don't have a budget to go that green screen route.
If anyone has any other suggestion, please help.

You would need to have only one matte green item in frame at a time and use other background as a sort of "wipe" in between, but you could probably come up with a pretty interesting tracking shot that way.
Anyway, that is the best low-buck idea I can come up with)
