The Stage Build Team from Lifepoint Church in Fredericksburg, Virginia brings us this great use of circles and shadows. (Originally from May 2012.)
They got inspired by a set at Elevation Church in Charlotte and changed it up a little.
The circles were cut from pieces of MDF. They primed the textured side. They spent $250 and that made enough circles for two campuses.
For a creative element they brushed on invisible backlight paint and lit the band and the circles up with backlights. Blacklights are $11/each at Walmart. The paint is about $20/jar. Each jar let them paint about 30 circles.
Behind the circles was a scrim backdrop that had a very muted design on it. They also hung a layer of drape behind the scrim so the projector bulbs wouldn’t show. A 36’x7′ backdrop runs $750 – they’ve used the same scrim for a couple sets now.
Tear down is simple too. Everything from the pipe and drape to the zip ties and gaff tape fits into a 2x4x6 case.
