Design Elements


Steven Hall from Northland Church in Longwood, Florida brings us these light boxes that would work great for smaller, portable churches and larger churches too! (originally posted June 2012)

They made these light boxes for Easter.

They started each of their set pieces with a 2″x4″ frame that was 4 foot by 8 foot. They cut black Coroplast into varying widths–1 inch to 2.5 inches wide. They attached those strips to both sides of the frames – criss-crossing them to give a random look. Once those were done they added a sheet of white Coroplast to the back. Then they finished the front off with 1″x4″ trim.

They used MR16 striplights and colorblasts to light them.

They also rented some Molten Lava fabric from Dazian Fabric that hung behind the crosses and on the sides. The crosses were built for them by a Daniel Parks at Model Works. The were made of MDF.

Lastly they used 3 DL-3s to project onto 3 Kabuki’s they hung between each service. They opened the service with the story of Mary looking for Jesus when he rose.

The entire set cost them under $500 to build.

Check out Steven’s step-by-step tutorial on the set and lighting here.
