    Film 2 shots with the camera on a tripod. One with the object and one without. Mask out the object. and put the other shot under your object, then animate how you want. this is called a clean plate

    Another technique that works brilliantly and is commonly used is... fishing line.  Or other invisible thread.  And another technique is to throw the object, and then reverse the footage.  In most cases, a combination of these techniques will work best.  Have the object on the ground, and use fishing line to show it just starting to move.  Then cut to your actor, and have someone off screen throw the object to him, so he can catch it.
