Hi all, my work often consists of various composites and blending techniques.

 

This video has roused my curiosity though. Any thoughts on how the ghosting is achieved here, on the people moving, but not their surface?

 

My initial thoughts are that the people are blended from different scenes. In some cases this is defintiely not true though, they are within the same scene for sure, yet are transparent, and the rest of the scene is not transparent (rocks sand water)

 

Perhaps with static tripod shots, ghosting can be achieved with a simple echo effect, only effecting things which move?

 

Helpful, positive replies welcome!

 

Cheers, David

Since most of the shots are locked-off, it looks like they just did a take with no one in the frame and then a take with the people moving through. Since the background is in both plates, it looks solid while the people look like ghosts when double-exposed over the same background.
