I wanted to get rid of the background using the colorama technique, but it's not blown out enough.

Is there a better way? Or is this just not a good video to remove a background from?

Here is the video: http://www.pond5.com/stock-footage/11452285/soldier-running-smoke-backgroun...

That's a relatively easy rotoscoping job.

Ok, thanks for the reply.
I'm fairly new to this. Are there any good tutorials on using rotoscoping to remove a background?

See After Effects Help:
rotoscoping introduction and resources

But, really, if you're new to After Effects you need to take a step back and learn the basics first. After Effects is not an application that you can just jump into the middle of. Start here to learn After Effects: http://adobe.ly/bjBT3P
