Falling on My Stage

Aaron Spencer from Trinity Baptist Church in Jacksonville, Florida brings us this layered look.

From Aaron: A variation of a similar design I saw here on the site, we went a little shorter on the height for our set. We added custom built light towers to the set to give a little bit of separation in the backdrop. The cards are just cut foam poster board from the dollar tree. They came as 20×30 boards and we cut them down to 5×10. the are hung on 50lb fishing line bought from Walmart for $2. The towers are all would construction painted matte black with clamp utility lights for the fixture using standard Edison lamps. We then wired the power plugs to a twist lock PowerConn connector for easy and secure plug and unplug. Our light boxes we moved to the top of our choir loft to have continued light effect in collaboration with our choir loft wall LEDs. The hanging cards are up-lit with Chauvet Colordash Batten Quad 6 LED fixtures for the main color and lit down and from the sides with Chauvet Colordash Par Quad 7 LED fixtures for secondary accent color.

    Looks great – what are the bigger panels made of? And where did you get those? Thanks!

    • The bigger light panels were custom made for us before I joined staff here. They are pretty simple to make though. It is essentially a 2.5’W x 6’H x 10″D box made from 3/4″ plywood that is open on one face. on the interior we cover it with aluminum foil to reflect the interior light. On each of the 2.5″ ends we mounted a LED bar light and pointed the directly at each other. We wired power and DMX to a small jack plate on the back and covered the open face with a translucent piece of fiberglass to allow the light to be seen. These have been extremely helpful creating looks for many of our stage designs and we also can use printed graphics over the fiberglass as a backlit sign as well. Hope this helps!
