How to Make an easy, cheap green screen with no posterboard
In this video you learn how to make your own green screen for less than $15 in under an hour. The material for the screen is a green felt-like fabric that can be easily found at a local fabric store or Wal-Mart. The fabric itself is just over 1 yard in width and you will need to buy 2 sheets 3 yards in length for a total of 6 yards at a price of about $2.00 per yard. You will also need a way to join the sheets together. For this, the video recommends a tube of Heat'n'Bond fabric joiner which can be used with an iron to bond the two sheets together at a price of about $2. While it is not completely necessary to join the sheets together, doing so will make it easier to move around comfortably in the area you hang your green screen without disturbing the solid green background and ruining the effect. After you join your sheets of fabric, your green screen will be ready to hang.
