You Lights Up My Life

Alive Multi Color

Sometimes, you just gotta rent some lights…
This Easter, we spent a little extra to rent some mover that are a little more powerful than ours. The tight beams enabled us to match some looks between the beams and our back screen, which made for a nice look. More on the Easter staging to come…

Sir Truss A Lot

 

Truss A Lot

We use truss in our stage looks. A lot. It’s very versatile – we’ll hang it, lay it sideways, build stuff out of it, etc… – one time we even used a “collapsed” truss look (swiped that idea from Willow) to represent the fall of Israel. Here’s an easy, free-standing look.

Light Walls

This summer we pulled out light walls back out of retirement! Homemade, but great looking and versatile. A great sermon illustration tool as well… Our Lead Pastor was on sabbatical this summer, and the first guest preach said that sometimes we get discouraged and feel like our light (evangelistic fire) doesn’t matter because there are so many people’s fires in a big church. He asked us to create a blinder wall, and held a flashlight amidst it to represent how we feel our light gets lost (this is a small fraction of it – it was like looking into the sun)!  :  )

Christmas 2013

A peek at Northview’s Christmas stage look for this year. We have two balconies in our auditorium (kind of like an old-fashioned theater), so the surface of the stage become part of the “look” for those viewing it from above. This year we have several large floor stickers to help give things a unique feel.

Idea Of The Week: The Fireplace

Ah, plasma screens… They can do so many thing, including pose as fireplaces! A great look that we used recently (which also would work well for Christmas)!

Idea Of The Week: (Comparatively) Inexpensive Stage Look

Quick one today… Just take a roll of screen porch screening, wrinkle it up, hang and light it! Voila – engaging and interesting look for a service (or series).
