Stage Designs


Kelly Baum from Garden Way Church in Eugene, Oregon brings us their abstract iPhone stage.

The set incorporates a total of 14′ plywood walls with about 14″ x 14″ cut outs. They attached muslin to the back side with a 1:1 Elmer’s glue and water mix. They also built a few smaller panels to hang in front of their baptismal opening. The smaller panels were 1″x4″ frames. They only weighed about 50 lbs.

Then they set LED fixtures behind the panels with a few gobos bring projected from the front to give it some texture.

Then they generated 24″ x 36″ posters that showcased the focus of each week with a different graphics and attached them to the walls on either side of the sanctuary. Finally, they hung sheets of lighting diffusion gels from the ceiling in squares similar to the ones on stage to bring the scenery into the congregational area.

They spent about $300 total on the design.
