Special Event Design

Fenced In

Paul Smollen from La Croix United Methodist Church in Cape Girardeau, MO brings us this barrier to goodness.

This design was intended to illustrate the barriers between us and the abundant life God has in mind for us.

They constructed a 12′ high chain-link fence with barbed wire across the top. They used 1.5″ rigid conduit and weighted bases to hold the chain link.

They projected a 40’w by 16’h composite image using 2 Barco projectors and Resolume software to stitch them together on the white cyc at the back of their stage. They used a combination of still images and animated shots. They mounted the projectors at the top of the stage opening and skimmed the image just over the top of the fence and keystone corrected it.

The sermon look moved from the fence fully lit and the background dark. As the pastor progressed, the light on the fence dimmed and the image simultaneously brightened slowly to full.

    Thanks, Adriano! This design was definately inspired by God to teach us to reach past the barriers in our lives and press toward the cause of Christ. There was a father in our church who reconciled with his son because of this stage. It is very satisfying and humbling to see almighty God at work even through our visual designs. We do all things for His glory.
