Yes, that’s right, you can appear twice in frame

Basic principles

These two shots are recorded in a single continuous take

Shooting it Right

The orange “used media ranges” tell the story: the first part of the clip has me on the right, and the second half on the left — though I could have shot a little wider

Stack Two Clips

Two clips, stacked one above the other

Draw Mask or Crop the Top Clip

Zoom out to place points beyond the edges of the frame


Choosing any speed (e.g. 200%, 50%) from the Retime menu creates a newly retimed region, and you can then drag the handle at the right-hand end to adjust its speed

Shake it Up

Adding a bit of camera shake can sell the handheld look even on an effects shot

Going Further

Here are three people who each took two positions within a frame, in a silly movie


A colleague vanishes in an old 48 Hour Film Project film
Here’s how to set up the full teleportation timeline
Finally, your double disappears
