i recently posted a video and got some great suggestions on how to improve, one was to shoot in front of a green screen so that the background would be more professional/interesting. i have a small budget....I would only feel comfortable spending $150 at the max - and would prefer to stay within the $50 - $100 range. But I've learned quickly what the regulars on here have repeatedly said....you get what you pay for. I am looking for an adequate green screen that I would be able to work with - i've looked at the foam backed from eefx.com and saw they have an 8x10 for about $110. I just dont know how to hang it up without buying all the extra stuff - the grommets, or rod hem..... is it not possible to hang these on any wall w/o those 'extras'?
I also looked at tubetape - but it seems the last commenter on green screens was not happy with the quality.
I've also looked at amazon and saw cowboy studio, britek, and estudio all make muslin sheets affordable - some come with the stands and lights , and some just have the 'sheet' - which i'm not sure how to hang...also, the price is cheap - which is great for my budget but makes me wonder if they would key well.
I've also looked at bhphoto - they have options of just the sheet, or the impact collapsible 5 x 7, or a $150 8x 10 muslin sheet with stand.
I had been looking at an 8x10 size because I had read that that's the minimum for full body shots - but I wondered if a 5 x 7 would be sufficient for waist-up shots? if so - that impact collapsible looks promising...but again, I'm not really sure the best/inexpensive way to hang these up. I would be transporting it each time I used it.
Any advice on which route you would take as someone who's never used one before and doesn't feel comfortable shelling out too much money?
Also - I have a large, roll down projector screen that I never use, I don't know if it is possible to rig up a chromakey green sheet so that I can attach it to the screen. The projector screen is relatively easy to hang up, and it seems like itd be easy to transport and store wrinkle free....just throwing that out there in case someone has done it before.
