View Full Version : Punch through body?

04 April 2010, 05:55 PM
I have a shot im trying to work out where a man punches another man in the stomach. Only the stomach is sort of a portal and the puncher falls in almost to his shoulder. So the shot looks like the man has his arm inside the other man. The audience will be looking over the shoulder of the puncher so you can see the arm go in.

Two factors to consider are that each man is shirtless and the punchee has his hands on the punchers shoulders as if he is pulling him into the portal.

Now Im not worried about the look of the portal thing, Im just asking what assets a compositor would expect when putting a shot like this together. Whether they be cg extensions or live footage. What would you want ideally.

For example would you need to shoot each person individually and then comp them together and roto the arm away? My only problem is how do you get clean interaction between then each man when they touch each other.
