Hello. My name is Chris. And I know nothing about filming, etc.

I would like to make a show with my friends, just for fun. But I don't know how to get started.

I had a though of using giant pieces of sterifoam, cutting it up and painting it green. This way I can green screen without having to build a set. I am very good with 3D art so it would be easy to render out scenes.

So here are my questions.

Is that possible?
Where can I buy a camera that makes it look good, but isn't extremly expensive?
What programs do I need for using the green screen, and for changing the colors etc. to make it look like a realistic show?

I know its probably not going to happen. But I love learning new things, even if I won't use it.

Any good 3-chip camera can do it. For software, I've used final cut and Premiere for it, but I believe Vegas offers some support for it as well.
