Why is my character still in front of the overlay

INT. PUBLIC LIBRARY - DAY with DESK LIBRARY at layer 1
#Mostly just directing with a few mind dialogue
#Also a scene that doesnt last long

@overlay DESK LIBRARY shifts to -320 -1 in zone 3
@overlay DESK LIBRARY scales to 1.000 1.000

music music_808full_lp

@zoom reset

@cut to zone 3

&VANESSA moves to layer -1
&VANESSA stands screen center in zone 3

@transition fade out black 3

put the overlay at layer 2 and then put your character at layer -1

The layer command needs to be on the same line as the placement command

&VANESSA stands screen center in zone 3 and VANESSA moves to layer -1
