As you can see in this image, I have a black layer set to 50% opacity that acts as an overlay. This overlay layer sets above all other layers. I would like the yellow layers to appear clearly ignoring that overlay but without actually moving them above it.

Is there a way to do that? or there any other technique to achieve what I want?

 

Thank you.

Apply Set Matte to the top layer and choose the layer with the controller as the source. 

 

Cropped screenshots that do not show us the modified properties of your composition and timeline are pretty useless. This looks like a comp with 3 layers. If that is all that it is there is absolutely no reason I can think of not to put the layer with the controller graphic on top of the darker layer.
