I need to shoot a green screen shot where a woman appears to be lying down and is floating. If I have her lay on a green floor, isn't it going to be hard to key out because she is right on the green and will be contaminated? If so how would I do this?

Thanks!

Simply having someone laying down on a green floor ALWAYS looks fake. You can always tell that someone is laying on a hard surface instead of floating in mid-air.

Either do a really safe rigging job and suspend her in front of a green screen with wires, or build a platform, drape it or paint it the digi-chrome green and have her lay on the very edge of it so we lose the sense that all her weight is resting on a firm surface.

Any other suggestions out there?
