Advice for character appearing out of no where prem pro

hi

I am very new to prem pro and editing!

i am looking to have a character appear from no where in a scene. I plan to shoot an empty forest path, add a flicker effect, and after a beat have the actor appear on the forest path.

any advice or tutorials i could watch?

This is an effects shot. It requires planning. But here's the process you should follow in a nutshell.

Match camera angles, shoot the subject on location on a portable green screen, shoot a clean plate, and key the subject over the clean plate. Add a transition effect to make the subject appear.

That's the easiest way to do it. There are easier ways to SHOOT it, but in the end they all involve a huge amount of extra work in post.
If you choose the easy way to shoot, look up what's involved in the process known as Rotoscoping before you commit to it.

Drawing up storyboards also help. They help you plan potentially-unforeseen problems such as, "do I want the subject to brush aside leaves after (s)he appears?" -- OR -- "if I just do a matched dissolve instead of a chroma key, will moving leaves be an issue?"
