Hello, I'm working on a project and one of the effects needed is having a character regurgitate a wand, Mary Poppins carpet bag style. The character passes out, is laying on the floor, and then wakes up, opens their mouth, and a wand miraculously travels up out of their mouth. Any ideas on how to accomplish this?
If this was coming out of an actual carpet bag or other inanimate object, I could use a false bottom on the container, since it's on the floor, but here my container is an actor, and I can't give his head a false bottom. I thought that we could make a practical solution, and create an animatronic version of the actor that has a false bottom, but I feel like there might be a way with vfx and matting and green screens to do something simpler, and maybe sell it with a practical component. Can anybody direct me to a video on the internet of something like this or give me an idea of how we could execute this?
