messy writing. anyway. (try using punctations.)...
you must have some room where this could be done. a garage..... i suppose you live in a house with one or another room over 6 metres2. if i totaly misunderstood the text and you magicly ment that you could NOT get any more green screen, you can use the part you have behind difficult keying spots, like the hair and mask out the rest............... i don't know.....

(for the record, i'm very tired so this entry may seem hard to read. )

try a one bedroom apartment, is there a way to crop the film? If I film Out Side standing on green with green behind me can I crop all other objects out since I'm just throwing it on top of another clip anyways?

To get full body shots you can stand the greenscreen the "hotdog" long way so your actor can be fully behind the greenscreen. If your greenscreen is small you will probably have some non-green surface on either side of the screen. As long as no action takes place past the greenscreen you can just garbage matte that out.
