My Green Screen

Weekend I finally got around to making that green screen I mentioned a couple posts back.  It is made completely out of bright green poster board that only cost sixteen dollars in total.  While it is not perfect, its great if you have a video project that you would like to add some depth to.
Some pics:
Building materials
I had no empty wall space so I ended up hanging it from the ceiling 

Finished project, works better then it looks.

So overall it was easy enough to make just tape some paper to a wall and your done.  However I would strongly recommend using a tripod while filming, unless you want the background to be having an earthquake.



  1. Looks cool, how long did it take to make?

  2. I need to make one of these. Been shooting some music videos for a friend's label and he's wanting some background effects.

  3. Very nice tutorial. What programs do you use with the green screen

  4. Friend of mine actually bought an actual green screen. Over kill. I like what you did.

    I use imovie 09 some other programs are adobe premier, final cut pro and sony vegas, but I'm sure there are others.

  6. haha that was very smart of you! way to save money and be creative! cool blog, following!

  7. How big is this? I can't get perspective from the photos

  8. This is a wonderful thing about the internet: to find such a useful information provided by people that actually know how to teach things to others. Keep up the good posts.

    I think its about seven and a half feet by around nine feet but you can make it bigger or smaller depending on what you want to use it for.

  10. nice but wouldn't it be cheaper just to buy green fabric and paste it or use a DIY wooden frame?
