Today Steve Ramsden can recreate something in much less time and money using widely-available digital tools such as Adobe Photoshop and After Effects. For a static shot, his method basically involves saving a freeze-frame of your video and then opening this in Photoshop. 

Here you can add your extra elements from other images and stock photos, and then re-export as a PSD for PNG file to retain the transparent areas. Then you can open this with your edit program and drop it in over the top of your footage, masking out any further areas where you need to see movement behind.
