    if you get a large roll of blue paper and stick it in front of the yellow then that will work just as well.

    It needs to be a seamless back ground. If you have seams like with large pieces of paper they will show. As to software to use I know pinnacle studio 11 does it. Try a fabric shop its needs to be a thick green so it doesn't let light through.

    Can get pinnacle software from the pirate shop

    Any colour that's not on the bits you want to remove from the scene (generally the people) will do.

    I've no idea what the process is called, but searching the web for 'Premiere Greenscreen tutorial' should give you a few hints.

    Well they certainly haven't taught you how to spell.....

    The process is a form of matte generation for motion video called Chromakeying.

    You record in front of a blue or green screen, paper should work fine as long as it appears seamless.
    Try not to stand too close to the background, otherwise you'll get a background spill.

    Once you've finished recording, you transfer the video onto PC, usually with Adobe Premiere.

    To remove the background you use Adobe After Effects. First start a new project, import your video into After Effects and then drag it into the timeline.

    The tool you want to remove background is under:
    Effect > Keying > Color Key
    You use the eyedropper to select the background color that needs removing, and then adjust settings to get a clean cut. This should give you an acceptable video without background.

    There's more advanced ways to remove the background, one of the methods I've used that produces nice results is described in ]this tutorial
