Lighting a small office video green screen studio

I work at a small company that wants to get into producing short video clips. I have been asked to figure out a basic lighting setup for filming individual people talking to the camera in front of a green screen. What do I need to know about video lighting?

We have a small room (about 8' x 10') that is going to become a dedicated film room, and have painted one of the walls green. We also have access to several photography studio lights (the kind that are mounted on a tripod and are shined on the metallic-colored umbrella), but can acquire additional lighting if necessary. We're going to be filming clips of one or two people on screen together, primarily from the chest up but on occasion doing full height recording.
