Hey guys, I'm wanting to make my own green screen for a possible video project.  I remember VAGUELY reading somewhere about someone saying the best type of fabric for a green screen is Green and then they gave a number or something.  Anyway, it was a standard shade you could pick up at Wal-Mart or any fabric store.

I was curious if anyone knew what type it was, or had any tips, urls in general on the subject.

I'm often told by directors & DPs it's just plain green, & not to get complicated.
Of course, this cones from guys who keep a fancy $100-$2,000 collapsible green screen handy, which, for some reason, looks a bit darker than that one wall in their studio that they painted green for green screening...

That's why I'm sticking with acting & audio for now, and will openly profess, I know nothing about either.
