I've lit a simple green setup with two Divas and it worked but it wasn't sexy. The tough thing is getting your green relatively flat and evenly illuminated and then getting flattering light on your talent. If you plan on shooting any dark skinned folks, it gets even tougher. You really need to light your green and talent with separate instruments. Plan on at least 4-5 feet between talent and green background for ANY separation. Ideally, 6+ feet which can be really tough depending on your space. Two diffused sources on green, 2-3 sources on talent. If you have a really small space, consider building backlight green panels rather than building a cyc and front lighting it.
