Filming with portal VFX

So I’m creating a portal short film, I’ve linked examples below.












However I’m not sure about all the shots I would need to have if I wanted to show someone running through a portal and out the other side (I would not show both portals on the screen at once, as shown in the two examples above). Would these be all the shots I need?

• Shot where the character acts as if they are entering the portal, then another shot where they exit the portal
• Shot of nothing to use as a background plate

Or is it necessary that I capture a shot of me in motion in front of a green screen as well?

Cheers, hope what I said wasn’t too confusing. If you are still confused, basically all I want to know is how would I display someone jumping out of a portal like in the videos I linked.

Here's a radical notion...

MAKE A FLIPPIN' STORYBOARD SO YOU KNOW WHAT YOU'RE DOING! DO LIKE THEY DO IN HOLLYWOOD AND WHENEVER COMPLICATED EFFECTS ARE NEEDED!
