Okay. For my college project I want to be able to put Arms and Legs onto a few water bottles to make them dance around and bow. The problem is I have no idea how to do this.

I think this is how it would be done:
Put the bottle on a green table or a table covered in a greensheet and then I get the angle I want etc.
Then I wear green shorts and a green cut on a green screen and key out the green so just my arms and legs are left then I layer them up on After Effects then pre-compose them to lock them into a single layer.

Is that right? if not any help to get this done would be greatly appriciated. My project has to be done by friday so if I could get the help over the weekend it would be great.

Thank you. Max

I wouldn't suggest shooting a clear bottle filled with water on a green screen and hope for good results when keying.

You need to do a CG water bottle or use a still image and animate that... or film it against something neutral and roto it out in Mocha.

The higher they fly... the much.
