Stage Designs

Mass of Fabric

Pip Bickford from CrossPointe Community Church in Wayne, MI brings us massive fabric screen.

After their Christmas concert, they wanted the stage to be simpler. So they decided to have the whole back wall act as one big screen. One problem–the baptistry in the middle of the wall.

To cover it, they used two 20′ x 5′ strips of white polysilk. They doubled the fabric over to create a more opaque medium to project onto.

They didn’t use anything else on stage for the set. They didn’t use special lighting–and just went with 5 band members on stage.

The projection was from one of their spare projectors mounted on their balcony.

The only money they spent was on the fabric–100 yards for around $300.
