Does anyone know to film in a mirror or two that are side by side without showing the camera?

If you mean like this:







This is duplicates sets with body doubles.

If you mean like this:







This is compositing work.

Like the second one but with two mirrors as well. How do you composite it in though, espeically if there's two?
I know about the Sucker Punch one - I have the triple play and there's an explanation and a filming of them filming it. I'd loved to have the money to do that but unfortnately...

We do a lot of visual effects you are asking for in house but providing step by step breakdown is really not possible. Contact DVD has a pretty good behind the scenes of how they created the shot .

If you want to do it yourself and have After Effects (with mocha AE) watch the tutorials on the mocha site to track markers and create shape masks:

Create the images you want to composite in the mirror for the effect and use the mattes and tracking information from Mocha to pit them all together.

Without storyboards and outline of what you wish to achieve it is hard to break it down any further.
