Planning a Green Screen Studio

Before you begin any construction, it's a good idea to plan your studio layout and green screen size. There is nothing worse than building a green screen which ends up being not quite wide enough.

Set up your proposed studio area and camera(s). Go through every type of shot you could possibly want and measure the total required background area. Allow enough room to change your mind about framing or widen the shot more than you originally thought. Also, allow extra space to the sides of the screen to place lights.

Ideally there should be some space between the foreground subjects and the green screen — this makes lighting easier.

Plan your budget.
