Green screens offer a wide range of flexibility and creativity when it comes to making videos. From news reports to epic battle scenes, having the option of producing a chroma key green screen has made special effects and camera tricks much more accessible to the aspiring filmmaker.
In fact, with the innovation of green screen technology comes the possibility to have any subject in front of any type of background, whether it be free stock footage, a 3D animation graphic or even something else entirely that has been filmed by the movie-maker.
While green screen effects are certainly something that every person interested in video should come to master, the truth of the matter is that most professional green screen kits available on the market today are quite expensive, especially for someone who is just beginning to play around with the technology.
For this reason, one great alternative to purchasing professional green screen equipment is to actually make a DIY green screen at home (or wherever one is filming). While this might sound daunting at first, hundreds of dollars can be saved by making video equipment instead of buying it, and in the case of green screens, almost anyone is capable of doing it.
