Have you checked out Buckhead Church‘s (in Atlanta, Georgia) stages yet? You really should. I’m working on getting in contact with the people who make these stage designs to see if they’re willing to share their techniques. Until then though I must admire their designs from afar like this one.
Carlos Whittaker was kind enough to post these pictures on his blog. If you’d like to share the techniques you’ve used to create something like this…please do so in a comment below. If you’re the guy responsible for this design…let’s chat! :)
Thanks to Jared for posting the how-to in a comment:
My name is Jared, and I am the Lighting and Scenic Director at Buckhead Church. Just to give you a quick rundown of this stage design. The city skyline was cut out of 4′ x 8′ sheets of a foam-core type material. We had a company with a CNC machine cut it for us (over 12,000 windows). We then glued vellum paper to the back side of the cutouts and lit that with LED strip lights. The backdrop was a fiber-optic star drop that was rented. Since we were going for a “Christmas in the City” feel we didn’t want to use christmas trees. Instead we purchased different sized trees from a local nursery that were all dormant.
