Green screen ideas. I can't afford a fancy green screen so here's what I did. Probably works best if you live in or can visit a rural area. I went to a fabric store, you know where grandma goes to buy her quilting stuff or where the odd gal goes to get fabric to make her very own dream dress.
I selected 6 fabric colors (light and med green, black, light and med blue and white) for use a backgrounds. They were all cut to 8 feet by 10 feet, see they come on big rolls you pull and snip off. Total cost? Well, it depends as there's another trick. Buy the stuff during late June to July. It's hot, many people are their A/C homes, public swimming pools, or barbecuing in their shaded backyard. So? Means folks who would frequent fabric stores aren't out and about. Prices are down due to attract those who stop by with sales. In my case, I spent a grand total of $48.13 for all the stuff above.
What about fabric type? In my case, I selected a mix of felt and polyester, under the theory of easy folding with less wrinkling when unfolded. Did it work? Well, yes. I only wish I had selected bigger fabric but what I got works and I didn't drill a hole in my wallet. Rural stores tend to have a better selection than many big city fabric stores and much cheaper. Be imaginative!
