We made a more basic tutorial on how to do this effect back in 2015 – watch it here:

I walk though how I’ve updated the effect using better techniques (in this version the whole person’s body transforms, not just the face and we use the after effects puppet tool, not the mesh warp.) The process is based on the idea of shooting both subjects in front of a blue or green screen, timing the movements to match, and then overlaying a series of keyframed layers to blend the face into the rubber mask and matching the movements using the puppet tool. Filmmakers, give it a go! Much more fun than a Tom Cruise deepfake!
