Maybe I am over-thinking this, but please look at the image below.

That projection screen obviously has the long black bar down the side, which for one makes it hard for the tracker to do anything.

We also cannot see the bottom of it, so there is no reference point for rotation.

Is this just going to have to be a manual track? The camera pans around the subject.

Is a reshoot possible? You are in desperate need of some tracking markers here...

You could try Rotobrush to get rid of it. The tough part would be filling in the hole it would create.
