I'm doing a shoot in a couple of weeks that I need to bring a green screen to. I'd like to find something that travels fairly compact, but I don't care how heavy it is.

There is a film & lighting equipment shop in Toronto I've been to, but I can't remember the dang name. I need to get it McQuick so I can get some practice in on it.

I have a larger muslin - about 12 x 20 - if you want to borrow it.

I'm looking to buy.

At Henry's I found:
- 10x16' Muslin, $240
- Background stand, $240

Why is everything always so dang expensive?

That's pretty sweet. I wonder how much overnight FedEx would be. I'm going to check it out. Thanks!

Did you consider a roll of paper? They make it in Chroma-Key and it's only $40-$50 roll. That way you can just tape it up on the wall, admittedly it's more fragile than an actual green screen, but it's disposable. Just a thought. Good luck!

Slippy what ever you do. make sure it is wrinkle free material. I bought one once and it would get wrinkles in it just hanging on the stand. I have since replaced it with one that can lay at the bottom of a heap of clothes for weeks and not a wrinkle. expect to pay around 250-300 for a good quality. eta perhaps a tad cheaper depending on size. mine is 12x20 with stand it was $295 however the stand proved to be very crappy.

I just ordered this one.

Chose FedEx ground, so hopefully it'll arrive in a week or less.

THanks everyone!
