Combining Shots in AE

Hi guys!

New to Creative Cow, just heard about the site recently, my teacher told me about the site, because I have a question beyond her expertise. I would like to combine a moving object, and persons from multiple (9 to be exact) shots onto a single one, as one would do when compositing multiple photos in Photoshop to make a single image. All shots have different exposures, background environment, and they are all handheld. A few would benefit from being stabilized, I can look elsewhere for that, but am stumped when it comes to combining these shots. Any idea how to merge into one fluid shot on a background that is not a green screen, but an environment? I would like to composite seperate videos into one

Manually isolating a moving object from its background relies on a technique called rotoscoping. Here's the Rotoscoping introduction and resources [link] page.
