David Swidrak from Hope Christian Church in Avon, OH brings us this cool combination of clean and grungy textures.
The main part of this stage design was the background material. David used 5 rolls of 48″ light screen mesh that they got from Home Depot for $27 a roll (20 ft). He used 5 generic 4′ LED light bars to uplight them which he purchased from Amazon for a previous stage design. Behind the wire mesh he ran 12 black LED strips and gaff taped them to the wall every couple of feet since the adhesive doesn’t really stick. Those were from Amazon as well. He used RGB decoder boxes to control each LED strip and linked them together via cat5 to save money on DMX cables. The stage wash consisted of 10 RBGW pars that were mounted above the projection screen. The 6 “skypan” lights were wash tubs from Home Depot with a 250w halogen lamp in each. They were inspired by VOUS Church’s DIY skypans.
(The LED fixtures and skypans were purchased for a previous stage design. They changed the whole stage around by adding the LED strips and wire mesh for $272.)
