Ben Murray from Piedmont Church in Macon, GA brings us these towers and lattice panels. (Originally posted August 2013)
They’re a portable church that meets at a school each week, so they’re limited in resources.
They took five 4×8 sheets of heavy duty insulated foam board ($10/sheet) and painted them with the diamond design using dark red and dark yellow paint. They hung the boards from chain and put a truss in the middle of each of the slots, thus taking about 5 feet off the back of the stage. The trusses were covered with dollar store white plastic table cloth, just stretched over the truss and attached using gaffers tape. Each truss tower was up-lit by an LED slim Par56. In front of the wall they built, there were 4 Q-wash mover lights.
Cost: around $150 (not including lights, they had those)
