Andrew Leslie from Cambridge Community Church in Cambridge, United Kingdom brings us these non-traditional stage light ideas from their stage.
In early 2014, Andrew was asked to create a design for Cambridge Community Church’s yearly Breathe Women’s Conference. He decided to create a design that had an intimate feel that linked to the theme of ‘Love’ for the conference. By using a lot of tungsten fixtures and also incorporating a lot of LED lights, he was able to create a vibrant and dynamic design—which gave him a lot of flexibility to cater for everything that was happening on stage throughout the 2 days.
For the design, they had four Patt 2013‘s. Two were flown from a truss downstage, while the other two were on stands on either side of center stage. Then they had four Tank Traps with a 2 Cell Blinder, LED Pars and LED Battens rigged from them. These were one of the key aspects of the design and allowed Andrew to take the stage from a warm tungsten to a cool moody LED look.
He also used 4 x 50 Festoons as houselights to create an intimate feel in the room and the impression of a low ceiling. There were also some pendant lights on stage, mainly in the drum cage to just add detail to the stage design.
Everything was rigged and programmed by Andrew in 1 and 1/2 days before they opened on the Friday Night.
