you can do such a thing with rotoscoping. Draw a freehand mask around him, click "next frame", and go for a long party ,-)

Oh yes I forgot !! Nice product ,-) did you try it ?

it depends on what kind of background he IS working on. There are more ways to pull a key than just straight bluescreen work. Post a screenshot and we/I can fire out ideas.

Could it be that maybe he needs to be infront of the blue screen and not behind? joke.

How many frames do you need to roto the dude for?

Post a shot and let us see what we can do for ya.
