Need a new green screen!

I had a very large peice of fabric I got a long time ago from Jo Ann's, but that is now destroyed. What are some alternatives? I want to to a full body shot.

Should I just paint some hardwood green and put them together? For the floor the same too.

I'm doing this on a cheap budget, just for me and my friends.

The greenscreen paper has become much cheaper than in recent years. This also allows you to properly syc the floor. Rounded at the base for infinite light dispersion...

I used their fabric for a couple of jobs and it doesn't stay wrinkled -- the fabric relaxes fairly quickly. The green keys nicely. It's tough. And it lights evenly. Price is good, too.

I use the cheap plastic table cloths that you can get from party city, or your local party/gift store. I got mine for about 69 cents a piece and one piece is about 8 x 4 feet I think. The only trouble I have is that they get wrinkles so I need to find a way to get those out of there, but other then that, they seem to work fine. And if one gets destroyed, they are cheap enough to replace.

just my 2 cents.
