Stage Designs

Diagonal Wood

Tom Ohmit from RiverLakes Community Church in Bakersfield, CA brings us this combination of wood and Coroplast.

For this series design, they moved their existing Coroplast backdrop 4 feet forward and set the drums back into the backdrop. Then they build new wood panel structures that extended off the projection screens and came down at an angle. Then they covered the back wall with brick wallpaper that they printed in-house on their large format printer. This cost 25% of what it would have cost to buy the wallpaper at Home Depot.

The Ready 2 Rumble logo was stenciled out in the same font as their print artwork using a projector. The outline of the text was burned in with a propane torch and the insides painted.

The Power of 1 logo (their annual theme of unity) was created out of foam sheets cut up and pieced together.

All other props were made by hand by a seamstress in the church.

Stage lighting was setup with blinders on top of the backdrop, 35w can lights from Home Depot on the angled structures and behind the drums, and LED par lighting. The 35w cans were running a flicker effect on their Jands Vista that gave them that “back alley” feel.

All wood, 35w light fixtures, props and other materials for this stage were donated. The only costs to the church were paint, brick printing and pizza – totalling $475.

There were a total of 12 people working together to make this stage come to life.
