Nice article. Some bits to add:
For God’s sake make sure all your lights are the same color (color temperature!) Mixing indoor (tungsten) and daylight temperature bulbs is a major no-no. Best thing to do is get all the same color lights (i.e. all indoor or daylight) at the same wattage. Same brand wouldn’t hurt either!
Don’t forget you also have to light the talent!
Get the talent far from the greenscreen as you can and still have it covering your background in the viewfinder/monitor.
Get actual chromakey green/blue paint/cloth if you’re making a background yourself. Trying to go ‘el cheapo’ by substituting it with ‘S-Mart Special’ green paint or cloth you got from the fabric store will cause you major problems when you try to do your composites! Pay the money and get the real McCoy.

Thanks for the suggestions Wolfgang. I posted a comment in my article with a link to this forum thread. Also I add a link to your website.

Hello again Videomaker community
I made this article in a step by step video tutorial. Comments are appreciated. Here it is:
There a three mistakes (that I know of. One of
them on purpose) in this video tutorial; two continuity errors and a
nasty jump cut. I challenge you to find it and post it below in the
comments. Let’s test how good of a video producer or filmmaker are you.
