Can I Chroma-key an entire movie?

Back to Chroma-keying.. shooting colour, releasing in B/W, is it possible to shoot all the actors on green screens and then place them into vacant live-action streets and buildings in Seattle- would it look good enough? Not fake and obviously green screened? Has software enabled the low-budget filmmaker to have seemless chroma-keying?

a.) perspective will count alot
b.) focal lengths must be accounted for
c.) you will rely heavily on the post
d.) why not do a mock scene somewhere that looks like LA?
well those are my opinions

I'm thinking about filming all exterior/interior buildings and streets in Seattle and then going to L.A. and working with actors on my no-budget epic. You may ask why not film entirely in L.A.? Because L.A. is hell and is a desert. Seattle is lush and green but all the people there are into everything but my film.
It's going to be into the mid 90s today here in Seattle. We're dying, I tells ya!
I understand what you mean about the lack of actors/actresses here. Casting my upcoming shoot has been an exercise in patience. Good luck to ya.

Have you considered going to Vancouver? I know it's across the border, but maybe a no-budget film might be able to fly under the radar there. Seattle loses out to Vancouver for US productions that need that PNW "look" all the time, and even some productions that don't!

But, I guess you're already set for Seattle, eh? Anyway, good luck.
