A wall at the TV station is painted in Chroma-Key Green (yes, its a real color).  Works great!  The only caveat is that you cannot take it with you.

We also painted our lab a pretty shade of blue that works the same way as a green screen with imovie.  Now every wall is a "green" screen.

In fact, for $8.00, you can get a large amount of bright green cotton from Joann Fabrics, hang it over your SmartBoard, and make perfectly fine Touchcast green screen videos with it: http://tiie.w3.uvm.edu/blog/app-smash-touchcast-aurasma/

Bonus: the sheet folds up for a traveling green screen. :)

I used a three point lighting system, also purchased at B&H. I'll send a video tomorrow to let you see what it looks like but my students are still playing with it .  Overall I'm pretty happy with the setup its not professional but it's pretty darn close.

I followed Linda's advice about 3 lights, but honestly in a well-lit room I have not found the "top light" makes much difference for video. I guess it helps for portraits, etc.
