I got a commercial i'm working on and what I wanted to know is this-- is it possible for me to mark a section of the person, lets say his tie, and then make the rest of the video black and white leaving his tie in color?
and if so what would be the suggested way to do this

Never tried it. But if you can convert a layer to Grayscale then it will.
Make two layers. The first is your normal footage, make it black and white. The layer above it mask your tie for the whole duration. Then click "invert" in the mask section. Done!

Yeah, without the keying tools you'll have to do all the masking by hand. brennanmceachran's technique looks quite promising, i'd give that a go.
