its the same green used for keying images-- chroma-key green or matte green. shooting against a green screen or this color of green in paper allows the graphic artist to easily extract the subject from the BG as the color doesn't match anything in the skin tone or the wardrobe in use. in movies they use a blue screen. in video usually a green screen.

i metered the mainlight to f/5.6. the small softbox above and behind, as well as the stripbox, were at about a third of a stop hotter at their closest proximity to the model. you might notice that both the backlights are angled so the light drops off as it goes down her body. you can see this effect in the image.

bead board (a gaffer's term) is, basically, styrofoam. the difference between bead board and foamcore is foamcore is smooth and shiny and more reflective (creating more specular highlights) whereas bead board is coarser, duller, and a bit less reflective.
