Yeah it is pretty easy. After a bit of trial and error you can get it looking good.

Once you understand the basics of compositing and/or masking, its very simple to come up with some good shots...

Also take a look at the tutorials, these will explain the basics for you.. smile

What you do is put a man up on a GS and then place him on the other footage you're using(as your background) and scale the man up. Try looking at the tutorial on shadows and then you can place the shadow in there to make it more realistic. I hope this helped
