Set Design: Creating an Inviting, Worshipful Space

Even if you aren’t building sets to match messages, it’s still impactful to create a look that provides an inviting space. The alternative of blank walls and general room lighting gives a sterile classroom feel.

In that image, it shows how they are edge lit light boxes that are reusable. The lighting is RGB LED tape (the white strip at the edge of the wood). Attached to the back of each diamond is a power supply and a DMX controlled LED driver. Each diamond is its own light fixture. The center look can be removed and replaced as the set changes. Here they are shown with a wood look. The decorative wood boards are mounted on a thin backboard that is removable. On the next set change, they will come out and the next look inserted!

Remember, this is a major part of what sets the mood in the room. So, be creative and experiment to see what works best for you.

Make the best out of that hour on Sunday!
