Yeah bluescreen is a bit trickier than green. If you are using After Effects CS3 or 4, you can use the Foundry’s ‘Keylight’ plug-in to get a clean key. You might want to recheck your original keyed video and it’s lighting setup as you may have multiple shades of blue from either not lighting your background evenly or having a wrinkled background. Hopefully your keying software will allow you to take multiple samples of blue from the scene. That should help some.

Also prior to shooting when your talent wears black or white, you want to take a roll of masking tape and roll it out on your hand sticky side out. Use the sticky side to get any lint off your talent’s clothing before you start shooting. That will also cut down on stray particles that may make it difficult to key out.
