I am wanting to purchase an inexpensive green screen and was wanting to know what my options are. I had read that muslin cloth can be used for a cheap solution but want to know how well it works. Also as far as lighting how do you use a chroma key such as a green screen? Would I need to get uniform light on the screen in order for it to work properly, and if so what are some good ways to achieve this? Also it is worth noting that I am a student so my experience with (and budget for) most techniques is limited.

I use a FJ Wescott digital green background for doing field green screen work. It works very well for anything less than a full body shot. FJ Wescott
Keep the light even on the back ground. Depending on your shot, this can be accomplished with 2 650's with light diffusion. I use a 1:1 ratio between talent and background exposure.
Good Luck.
