This might sound silly... But uh, why don't you just throw the shield?

PS. I like the shield.

You would have to get a 3D model of the sheild and perform the action in a 3D program such as Blender.

Yeah, this isn't the kind of thing that can be done by a preset in our programs, it's not what they're designed for. You might as well try to do it in Word. wink

A 3D program would do it nicely, however, or you could film the actual shield against a greenscreen and then composite it onto your shot using CompositeLab or VisionLab.
