Christopher Cope from Firezone, Salvation Army Youth in New Zealand, Figi, and Tonga brings us this stage design from their 2013 Amplify creative arts camp.
They wanted this year’s stage design to be simple, symmetrical, and very straight lined. It also had to be versatile enough to accommodate the different groups (dance, drama, music) that were going to perform throughout the camp.
They ran media across three screen. In between each screen they hung two LED strips. These were homemade using LED RGB strips bought from eBay and placing them in black powder coated metal channels with a white acrylic cover. These were then controlled by RGB DMX decoder units.
They hung light bulbs from the ceiling for their previous conference, but this year they attached these to wooden beams that spanned the width of the stage that had been painted matte black. Each line of seven was on a separate dimmer channel.
They had six Chauvet Q-Spot 560 for the movers sitting at various level at the back of the stage. To provide color washes they had ten Chauvet Colorado Zoom Tour 2 and six Colorado 2s.
Media Control was with Renewed Vision’s ProVideoPlayer & ProPresenter with the a TripleHead2Go. Lighting control was with a Road Hog 3.
