[Alex Sedgwick] "Is there any way to render this in a shorter timeframe..."

Keylight can get pretty heavy. It'd be great to get a sense of your footage and computer specs for more understanding about the speed. A faster option might be to use the Ultra Key in Premiere Pro.

[Alex Sedgwick] "... with a more reasonable file size?"

Ae's default output module, Lossless, is totally uncompressed. To save disk space, you should use a compressed format. Personally, I'd recommend rendering to a high-quality "mezzanine codec" like ProRes, CineForm, or DNxHD/DNxHR.

For a few more details, see "Why is my output file huge, and why doesn't it play back smoothly in a media player?" here:
