If I wanted to get rid of somebody:
During shooting: I’d either step in front of her, raise or move the cameraor tell her straight I know 5 martial arts and I’m not afraid to use them. it wouldn’t be so much “hitting a girl”, as “accidently karate chopping herhard enough to knock herout cold”. (ok, i’m kidding)
During Postproduction: I’d cut out footage with her in it as much as possible and for the rest, try doing a fit-to-shape mask in Adobe After Effects or Photoshop CS3 Extended.
If I want somebody out, they don’t stay in, unless a shot they’re in has good composition otherwise and they don’t move around the shot for a bit.
