#1

Hi everyone, I’m having trouble figuring out how to put a person behind a bar table in a background that already has it set up. So I don’t know if this has to do with the overlay since there is no overlay I am adding. The background I’m currently using is: INT. BAR - DAY

Please help, I wan’t to put a bartender on this scene behind the bar. :slight_smile:

You would have to layer your character.

I’m pretty sure the only backgrounds with overlays are the ones that have OL in the name so you would have to make an overlay out of the bar otherwise the character can’t stand behind it.

I could have sworn on a story I was reading there was a bartender behind the bar in the background I gave above…:thinking:


#5

you’ll most likely need an overlay and use layers , as i’ve stated above


#6

You will have to find a bar overlay. @smg.episode on Instagram has bar overlays for that background. Be sure to give her credit if you use her stuff though.


#7

yeah they would have cut the bar out and made it an overlay

Moved to Directing Help & Tips as that’s where scripting questions live! Did you get an answer to your question @LoveLifeSo? :slight_smile:
