Tyler Jacobs, an entertainment lighting designer designed this set for a special event at Heritage United Methodist Church in Clearwater, Florida. Their theme was “Move” and required a set that was extremely easy to setup. (Only 5 hours to load-in and program.)
So to transform the traditional look of the sanctuary for the event, Tyler opted for everyone’s favorite: coroplast! He used 4 black sheets (4mm thick) and cut out letters using a projector. He then mounted 4 uncut white sheets with gaff tape to the black sign. (Coroplast comes in 4′x8′ sheets for about $12 each from any local plastics manufacturer or sign shop.)
The whole set was zip-tied to pipe used for pipe and drape (they can be rented for a low cost, much less than trussing).
To light the letters, Tyler used 20 Elation Design Brick 12′s with 3 lights for each letter. Check out the video to see what it looked like live. (no audio)
