Special filter for a green screen?

My client told me that I need a special filter for a camera for shooting a green screen. What is he talking about?

I'm at a loss to know unless it is a special situation you are shooing under. I shoot green screen regularly with nothing special on the camera.

If you get more info about what this mysterious filter is be sure to let us know.

Re: Special filter for a green screen?

Some people put green gels on their background LIGHTS to make the green more pure, maybe he's confused...have never ever seen any reference to a filter on the LENS.....just musing, maybe if you had a glare on a background a polarizing filter on the lens might help to remove it, never have tried this or seen any mention of doing it, however.....
