While thumbtacks might work, the length of the fabric requires a lot of
them (that length of fabric gets heavy).  We started with a frame made of
PVC pipe, but have graduated to several mounts like this one

so video shooting can be mobile.  We've also hung the green fabric across
our library bookshelves and used clamps like these

to
hold it in place.  The extra green fabric, in as close a match to your
green backdrop, is really helpful for those special effects (especially at
this time of the year).

Remember, wrinkles and seems matter, so you want it to hang straight for
best effect.

Good lighting makes a big difference as well.  I use this 3 point lighting
tutorial <http://www.mediacollege.com/lighting/three-point/> and 3 point
simulator <http://www.mediacollege.com/lighting/three-point/simulator.html>
when
we're learning about optimal set up.

We're going to be making green screen social media profile pics in the
library next week, as a way to explore special effects and digital
presence/digital tattoos.

Best,
Shannon
