* One of the improv games in ''Series/WhoseLineIsItAnyway'' was "Newscasters", in which one actor (usually Colin) would play a field reporter in front of a green screen. The other actors, who could see the background scene in a monitor, would play news anchors asking the reporter questions about the scene. Hilarity (and sometimes squick) frequently ensued.

** The potential problems associated with this technique can be averted (as with TheBBC since its news department moved to Broadcasting House) by using rear-projection on a plasma screen instead of ChromaKey.

* When Harry Carey worked at WGN covering the Chicago Cubs, during the postgame show he and the play-by-play commentator would sit in front of a blue screen showing the crowd at Wrigley Field. Carey, whose CatchPhrase was "Holy Cow!", had a little plastic cow which had some blue dots on it, making it "holey" so you could see "through" it to the shot behind them.

* Part of the trope we in ThisWiki know as RTPStylePeriodPieceLocationShooting.
* This is played with in Mythbusters when Adam was so drunk he hung a green screen to inspire him while he ran on a treadmill, then realized only the audience could see the effects. All he could see was green screen.

* Creator/TimBurton's ''Film/AliceInWonderland'' used this extensively. The sets seem to consist of nothing but green walls in the proper shape, along with platforms. Only things the human characters touched actually existed on the set, and most seemed to be green and were textured via CG (The Tea Table seemed to be an exception, due to the hatter walking on and knocking stuff off). The staff comments in the "Making Of" stated it was an "Odd Mix" of Full CGI (too many to list), motion capture characters with the actor's head pasted on, normal actors human (mainly Alice), and edited normal actors (the Red Queen and her giant head).

to:

* The ''VideoGame/JustDance'' series and its various spinoffs uses chroma-keyed footage of human dancers against themed rendered backgrounds that are usually animated to sync with the song and/or the dancers' movements. In the occasion where a dancer's outfit or costume must be green, such as a costume of Slimer from ''[[Film/Ghostbusters1984 Ghostbusters]]'', it is designed for the filming with a different color (usually blue) in place of the green and then recolored for the actual video.

* The exit of ''Ride/SpaceMountain'' at [[Ride/DisneyThemeParks Magic Kingdom]] has a green screen wall on one side, and when in front of the green screens, guests can see themselves on TV monitors looking as if they're in space.
