simple special effects help

Recommended Posts

I'm planning a film where someone plays two parts. I probably won't get too fancy with it at all. But just in case, I was wondering if anyone had advice for a novice to get into some masking and tracking (feels like that would be all I need..)

If you keep your camera locked off it should be fairly simple. If you're in a natural light situation make sure you film both takes within a few minutes of each other. Get a stand-in that looks similar to the talent to act out scenes for eyeline. Also if you need to do over the shoulder shots it helps to have a stand in that looks like your talent (back of their head, shoulder area).
