I have an idea for a film project that I would like some advice on.
I want to use my GoPro with the handgrip attachment to "interview myself" on a ski chair lift.
Here is what I mean by that: I want to ride a two person chair lift and on the first ride, with the camera pointed at me, I am going to record myself asking all the questions. On the next ride I am going to wear a different outfit and sit on the other side of the chair and record all the answers. Then I want to edit the clips together to make it seem to the best of my ability that they both occurred on the same chair ride.
I could just standard cut / jump cut the clips, but it will be pretty obvious to the viewers what I did and seem discontinuous. I would like to somehow edit the transitions to create the effect that there are really two of me on the same chair (it will be obvious to my viewers that it is the same person, because they all know me, but it will be funny because I am wearing different outfits and I will talk / behave differently for the two different characters).
What I am not trying to achieve is some sort of photo shopping technique to get two of me in the same frame at a given time, but somehow pan back and forth in a smooth way to make it seem as close to being one continuous clip as possible.
Imagine that two people were actually on the lift, and I pointed the camera at myself to ask the question, then turned it to aim at the other person for the answer, then back to me for the next question. This is what I want, but I have to edit it since there is (obviously) only one of me.
Just to help people who aren't familiar with what a ski lift might look like, here are three screen shots from a video of a friend and I essentially doing what I described above (but with two people instead of ong)
Camera being aimed at me for a question, camera was being held by my friend sitting next to me Halfway between panning from me back to my friend holding the camera Camera fully panned back to my friend holding the camera
Obviously picture two is unachievable since it has both people in one shot, but I am thinking I might be able to take advantage of the black pole that is in the middle of the chair?
I hope my question is clear, please let me know if I can improve it in any way. Let me know what creative ideas you might have to achieve this goal!
I typically use adobe rush or adobe premier pro for editing.
There is a park near my house that has two swings with a similar pole in between them, and I was thinking I could practice on that before filming on the ski lift.
