Hi There.
Not sure which forum to use for this question but I am trying here...
I am about to shoot a video of a figure leaning on a wall and change the wall...
Since leaning on the green-screen will cause shadows that will pretty much conflict with the green screen method, I thought to ask in a forum for a suggestion.

I might make the actor lean on something small, and act as if he is leaning on a wall. Or I will hope to kill all the shadows...

The lean will be from this angle pretty much

Anyone was dealing with such issues?

I am new to AE, but maybe, Rotoscope?

If the actor is leaning to the side on the wall, just make sure you build that wall in front of the screen at a good distance so that it will not cast shadows on it. Make the wall green as well and make sure you get few clean plate shots to make keying a lot easier. I presume that the wall will show at some angle and that's why you are worried- cause if it's just a straight on shot, then there's no problem.
