This is actually a really easy effect because once you have keyed your footage change the background colour to green and apply a grade effect to your keyed footage giving it the look you want.

For example to make your character black you can apply an exposure grade and turn everything to the minimum.

For a back and white character you could apply a de-saturation grade.

or for a funky coloured character you could apply a hue shift to your keyed character.

Once you have done this your rendered footage will have a green background and your character will have the effect you choose.

oh, and if you know how to key yourself out - you'll need to invert your key so that you are kept and your background is keyed.

Well the orange background can just be an image.

Making your shape blue or green, you should be able to use an object mask, so...

Import your greenscreen footage, key yourself out of it.

Import a blue or green image, and place on the timeline.

In the colored image, select mask > object mask, selecting the greenscreen footage as your source. Make sure you switch off the greenscreen footage so it doesn't appear on the canvas.

at the risk of this being a stupid question, where is the exposure effect?

Exposure is a VisionLab exclusive, I believe.
