This instructable will show you how to create an outdoor green screen for making effects for movies. All that is needed is scrap plywood, spray paint, and the need to make one.

Step 1: Materials Needed
For this instructable you will need:
1. 2 pieces of scrap plywood (one for the ground, one for a background)
2.green spray paint (make sure it will work on wood) *
3. optional-black spray paint (for the back side if wanted) *
*I would get at least two cans of spray paint per color because I ran out of black spray paint before I finished the second side, but it depends on the size of your boards.
Step 2: Prepare to Paint
In order to spray paint these, you need to find a place that is open, and not near anything important. I chose an abandoned dirt parking lot across the street from our house.
Also, make sure your board will take the spray paint well. What I mean by that is to sand your boards if they are too rough. I did not do this, although I probably should have.
Step 3: Spray Paint Time
This is a pretty simple step. It is time to spray paint the boards, and let them dry. I forgot to take pictures of spray painting the other side, but I did in fact paint the other side black.
Step 4: Use to Film Effects!
Now all you have to do is use them! I will put a link to a test video soon.
