Cheap Green Screen

This year I am all about high tech lessons on a tiny budget. One of these is my cheap green screen and the fun we have had with it.  I grabbed some bright green fabric from Hobby Lobby and used the 40% off coupon for extra savings. It cost around $20 for five yards.  I have had my students use it a couple of times so far this year. Once for Halloween when they laid on it so they could do any pose and once for our holiday open house. For the second project they used props and made winter scenes.

We are an iPad school so we used instant alpha in keynote to create our pictures. Here is the how to video I made for the open house.

Here is my own green screen pictures! 

By using a native app to create the photos and cheap fabric you have a green screen for around $20 (minus the cost of the iPads HA!) If you want something even cheaper you can do instant alpha on a blank wall or butcher paper.
