How we designed our new Stage Background
When we built our new worship facility, we installed a lot of colorful lighting. However, we noticed over several months that the colors were not really being reflected on stage because the back wall was black. We decided to add a white pattern to the wall in order for the color of the lights to pop!
Harry Fleming found an idea online using decorative ceiling tile. Bloom Foldscapes are white, flat cardboard sheets. They are folded into a 3D shape and then stapled to the wall in whatever pattern you choose. The whole background cost us $80! We rented a lift and laid out a pattern that would symmetrically fit with the side walls and center screen. Then, our lighting team took a few of our Elation Opti Quad fixtures and positioned them to make the background POP! When you look at the squares up close, they look rough. However, if you back up 5′, you don’t see all the staples and rough edges.
