Ever wish there were more than one of you? Well, don’t over think it – the part about a bigger food budget and more bedrooms and college tuition for all of the YOU’s.
I used Adobe After Effects (AE) for the special effect. I filmed the scene with a camera on a tripod. The subject moved from spot to spot. I put multiple copies of the film segment on top of one another in an AE timeline and, using the pen tool, I drew around a different subject in each of the six segments on the timeline. The time consuming part is that I had to advance the clip one frame at a time and tweak the edges of the subject. As she turned her head to talk to one of the other “hers” or as she moved her arm, I had to adjust the line around that part of her. The end result was that all of the different subjects are in one final segment.
