    Hi everybody,
    I'm writing here because I'm looking for videos with a particular
    effect, without any success!
    I'm looking for videos in wich a character il walking or running (or
    moving) through different settings or backgrounds or worlds without
    interruption. An example could be a person walking, and then jumping
    into a paintings wich became alive and the new settings for the
    character. Or a backdrop falling into the scene that becomes the new

    Thank you in advance,
    Giorgio Gallina

    Anything done with the chromakey effect is probably what you're
    looking for.

  3. Um, have you seen the movie, "The General", with Buster Keaton?
    Or maybe, "The Last Action Hero", with the "Governator"...?
    Not video, but...;-)

  4. This effect pops up a lot in commercials; there's a Claritin ad
    running now that does this. A guy's sneezing as the backdrop changes
    behind him, showing all of the outdoor fun he's missing because of his

    It also shows up - somewhat different context - in the movie
    Casablanca. Rick and Ilsa are in the car, in the Paris flashback, and
    the background dissolves behind them while their conversation
    continues uninterrupted. It's a VERY stylized process shot, all
    things considered.
