Stage Designs

Half Pipes

Tim Wagoner and Paul Holst from Long Hollow Baptist Church in Hendersonville, TN bring us this awesome, versatile set.

For this set they wanted something that filled their large stage but wasn’t distracting. After toying with a few ideas in Sketchup, this is what they came up with.

The set was built by cutting arches in pieces of plywood and then attaching them to 2×4 structures. They lined the backs in reflectix to give a more even spread from the LED tape that they lined the sides with. The front was covered in natural Coroplast which they’ve found to be the cheapest translucent material. They also added some thin wood trim pieces over the Coroplast to give a more finished look.

All the LED tape was controlled by Elation Elar Driver 8 decoders, and run into their Martin M1.

In later photos, the Pixel bars were controlled out of PVP into madmapper, and later run by Arkaos Media Master Pro and their Martin M1.

They’ve ended up using these set pieces in a few different looks now as seen in the photos.

If you want to borrow these pieces and are in the Nashville area, leave a comment below and get in touch with them.

    My question… How could I do this if I wanted to make pillars?
