Brandon Carr from The River Community Church in Hartland, Michigan brings us this exploding stage design.
This design was inspired by Exploding Boxes.
They took ninety 2X2X2 white cardboard boxes bought from Uline.com. They painted half of them gray and stacked them. And get this. They’re a portable church! So they made them in groups of four so they could easily be removed each week. The 4′s were interlaced with some open lids that they taped to the backs of other boxes to make them stay together. The dimensions: 16′ high, 8′ wide, and 2′ deep.
Truss “busting” through:
They rented a couple 50 lb bases, 6 foot poles, and 4 swivel cheeseboroughs, and mounted it at an angle. They cut “CROSSwords” (series title) out of 2″ foamular insulation and taped it to the front.
They bought 4 new LED Bars (Colorstorm-Blizzard Lighting) to get the smooth gradient on the boxes. Then they used 2 Par 64 LED Cans to wash the truss.
