This is going to be slightly run and gun but I need to make sure it is pulled off perfectly.
Thanks for the help.

I was thinking about it the other day. I'd measure everything, choreograph to a beat, and do multiple takes to see what lines up right. I don't think there was any camera movement really, so no motion control, all just marks and diligent choreography.
Perhaps someone else knows of a way more technologically advanced way to do it.

It seems like they had to have someway of matching because even his facial movements are consistent throughout...

Yep this commercial:It seems like they had to have someway of matching because even his facial movements are consistent throughout...
I'd still say that it was choreography and dynamite talent. Or something that if you're doing a simple run and gun that may be out of the budget.

A few EVF's will allow you to do overlays, making match frames pretty easy. Combine that with some old school camera logs and you'll be in business.

I don't know, a lot of that seems like composite shots. The depth, FOV, and light is just a bit off for some of the shots.
Agreed for the backgrounds, but his movements are still pretty well planned.

I noted that he was in the foreground of the lion share of those scenes which would allow easy an easy green screen composite - but then lighting changes are too abrupt ... Still doesn't exclude it as a possibility - talent (as in a real talent, someone mime or dance trained) would do the same path/movement under all the required lighting set ups, comp, spatial and temporal morph if need be.
Chuck in some real locations to make the doubters doubt and cut so fast that no one gets a chance to assimilate and away you go
