How to create the "Superimposition" effect (without a blue screen)

Short demo


Step by Step Tutorial

Step 1: Watch a movie
Watch the superimposition tutorial

Step 2: The concept

The "superimposition" effect, in this case, is created using about 33 different layers in an After Effects project file - so it's the most challenging effect I've done so far, mostly because I decided NOT to use a blue screen here. The video shown above also contains a force jump, force drop, and light saber effects. If you haven't already figured it out, this tutorial is for people who have used After Effects before and are familar with layers. I don't go into great detail on how to replicate the effect (yet). I might decide to post the AE project file later on....
