Does anyone know how to get a character to stand in front of an overlay!?!?!


#1

Ok so recently I have been writing a story about a homeless girl and at one point in the story she is in that EXT. PLAYGROUND DUMPSTER OL - DAY background. Anyway so someone walks past and drops a pizza box in the dumpster. But I can’t seem to figure out how to get the character who is putting the pizza box in the dumpster to not actually be in front of the dumpster
Please help me!

I think you can do:

EXT. PLAYGROUND DUMPSTER OL - DAY with EXT. PLAYGROUND DUMPSTER OL - DAY at layer 0

Then you can do your overlay spotting like normal.

Moved to Directing Help & Tips as that’s where scripting questions live, and closing as this has been resolved! Cheers for responding @Purple_Ghost :slight_smile:
