Matt Routley from Bethel Sarnia in Sarnia, Ontario brings us this stage design in the clouds.
This design was for their VBS, themed Sky.
They started by making clouds out of white Coroplast. They simply traced them out and cut them. They made wooden stands from 2x4s that they attached the clouds to to keep them upright.
They made the back cloud from six 4×8 sheets – 3 wide and 2 high.
They crafted the airplane from chicken wire and paper mâché.
They used normal fabric to create the hot air balloon. Matt found a template for a tissue paper hot air balloon here and use the same concept. To hang the hot air balloon he left a hole in the top and hung it up with a clothes hanger. He held the bottom open with a sewing hoop. To puff the fabric out they attached a fan to one of the openings and turned it on.
They fed the power cable from their stage, but would have preferred to feed it from the ceiling.
The lighting was done with Microh LED Par64’s aimed at the clouds.
Finally, they masked out the hot air balloon in ProPresenter so the projection wouldn’t hit the balloon.
