VFX Question (Moving Person)

Hello, I am a videographer from MD. Had an idea to make a music video in which a guy is chopping wood. In a scene id like to have him chopping the wood, but at the same time have his face look as natural as possible, but staring into the camera saying the lyrics.

I have a pretty decent understanding of editing with Premiere Pro and After Effects, but I am not sure of the best way to approach this.

Thanks in advance.

The best way would be to ask the question in a forum that does that kind of thing. That should give you better answers. This is a realtime VFX forum so we make effects for videogames.

But, wouldn’t this just be a question of hiring someone who can chop wood with a blunt axe while staring into a camera?
