this may sound kind of cheesy, but ive had very good luck using a large green tarp i found in my friends garage. he said he got it at walmart. Its EXTREMELY big, but i imagine you can find one thats not so big....its a similar color to what the standard green is for a wall.

just make sure you light it VERY well. i would suggest lighting it, and then testing it in premiere or whatever youre going to edit in, and make sure everything is keying out okay. otherwise you will likely have alot of unusable footage. I use an old modified tv studio light (modified to plug in anywhere i need to), 1000 watts does the job nicely.

good luck
