How to Fold a Green Screen

A green screen is an essential tool for altering backgrounds, displaying maps, and creating special effects. Unfortunately, unless you know a few strategies, storing these flexible panels may be a challenge. Fold and pop open your green screen until you can take it down in a matter of seconds.

Folding a Pop-Up Green Screen

1. Pick up one of the green screen’s short ends. This approach works well with green screens that are 5 by 7 feet (1.5 m 2.1 m) in size. Pick up one of the short ends and place it against your hips when you’re ready to put the green screen away. Allow the other end of the rope to rest on the ground.

The green screen should not be supported against a wall or laid flat on the ground since it may distort or be trodden on.

2. Grab the screen’s long sides with both hands and fold them up. Put one hand on each of the rounded corners of the short end that is against you. Hold them securely and fold the screen like a taco with your hands in front of your chest.

3. Fold the screen by crossing its sides. Bring your right hand over your left, or your left hand over your right, such that the screen’s borders overlap. Push them all the way down to the ground, and the screen will collapse in on itself.

Pick up the circular folded green screen at this point. As you elevate the screen, pinch the edges to prevent it from unfolding or popping open.

Storing an Extra-Large Green Screen

1. Lift up a short end of the extra-long screen and place it in front of you. Place the green screen in front of you with the short end facing you and the long sides extending away from you. To begin, place the green screen on the ground. Then pick up the closest short end to you.

This approach may also be used to create a green screen using sweep. This implies there is extra material on the green screen that you may drape where the wall meets the ground.

2. Like a book, fold the edges together. With both hands, grasp the edges of the short edge and gently draw them up towards each other. The green screen cloth should hang in a U-shape beneath the borders.

3. Lower the screen’s end to the ground. Take a few steps forward while holding the screen in a U-shape so that the whole screen curls like an arc. Then lower the end you’re holding until the edge reaches the screen’s already-on-the-ground bottom.

After you’ve lowered the end to the ground, place your hands on the screen’s sides, close to the centre.

4. The right half of the screen should be folded towards the centre. Each side of the screen has formed a little loop at this time, and the majority of the green screen cloth is loose in the middle. Fold the right loop down so it rests flat on the ground while keeping your hands on each of the loops at your sides.

While folding the green screen, squat towards the ground.

5. To complete folding the green screen, overlap the opposite loop. Bring the second loop down onto the other loop, flat on top of it. Tuck the fabric in between the two loops of the screen when folding a green screen with sweep.

When picking up the folded green screen, remember to grasp both sides or it will spring open.
