We are shooting a scene in a bathroom, over the shoulder of subject looking into the mirror. Our goal is to have flashbacks of the past played in the mirror. Would we acheive this by greenscreening the mirror and if so what steps what I need to insert the flashback image? We are new to all of this so any replies would be appreciated. Thanks

What program are you using for editing?

As long as the shot is steady, and you don't really have to match move, you can always just matte out the mirror in Final Cut, Motion or After Effects. It might get trickier if you have the person partially blocking the mirror. You might want to avoid or limit that to simplify process. A green screen might be overkill for this though.
