You have to make descisions here…
trying to get it all in camera requires lighting control.
can you light your talent and control lightspill to prevent light from hitting other areas in your scene AND is your projector powerful enough to project it’s image at your background and contrasty enough to keep the shadows black? if so you need to meter the lighs with a handheld meter and balance them accordingly.
or else you’re looking at compositing everything in post…. shooting everything separately green screening if needed…
here is an example of a composit photo where a still life was shot using a video projector to add the background:
and another where it was shot infront of a greenscreen: the lighting technique is the same for video, so it’s doable.
