Introducing my new office green screen

I mentioned last week that I was planning on making a green screen for my office over the weekend. I’ve been using a FlexDrop 2 green screen to create videos for business and non-profit stuff, but I felt like it was time for an upgrade. 

This was really an easy project that didn’t take much skill or time. I purchased a $25 MDF board (Medium-density fibreboard), $10 of Disney paint (one quart – flat paint) from Home Depot, some drywall screws, and liquid nails (glue). Thank you to Sonja for the tip on MDF board. I actually purchased drywall at first, but once I started to tinker with it, I really felt like the MDF board was going to be a more durable product (just don’t get it wet). The Disney paint seems like it’ll be fine, but we’ll see if it holds up over time. A chroma key paint is probably the best way to go, but it is $60+ per gallon.

Have a look at the video below to see how this project came together and if the screen works or not. What do you think?

    Man Ryan, I need to fly you into Baton Rouge and have you setup my studio. Congrats. It looks so good. My wife says you look like you’re about fall out laughing you’re so excited! I can understand why! Looking forward to watching your videos.

    Did Bill and Tinna stop making their The Appraisal Show videos?

      Bill, I forgot to respond to your last question. Tinna stepped down from the show in light of a career path change (still in appraising – honestly I don’t really know what path she took, but that’s what her last video said). Bill is formulating his game plan now. He’s a good guy. I just saw him yesterday at a Realtor meeting.

      Hmm, that’s a great idea. Honestly, I’ve always thought it would be great to see a series of neighborhood movie nights. I wondered what we could project on if we ever decided to do that. I thought maybe the garage door or a sheet. If we wanted to make something really stellar though and spend just a few bucks, we could bring on the MDF. Thanks Sonja.
