Church Stage Designs | Projection Drop

Welcome to episode 80 of the [inaudible] podcast. This is your host, Stephen, and I’m thrilled to be talking with you today about a custom projections. Rob’s a. So today I want to talk to you about a, uh, a specific design that we’ve been talking about with the church out of Texas. A good friend of mine, Anthony works down there, um, and we’ve been talking about helping him create a really beautiful church stage designs, specifically the maturity stage design. We’ve been talking about as a projection drop, uh, with the exclusion of some panels to create holes for moving lights. Uh, so the, the lighting looks really incredible that they have a lot of options for lighting placement, uh, and that the, the, the, the video and folds, all of the different production elements. So I’m pretty great little thing and I think it’s gonna be a great project and credible.

So a specific panels. We’ve been looking at a keystone panels. So the keystone is a trap as oil, a panel with a one inch gap around every panel. It gives it that really separated out field. Looks like a customized, a really cool customized screen, but within that we’re taking out some panels, uh, taking out like every twelfth panel, essentially 20th panel, something like that. Um, we’re taking out these panels so that we can place lights in those gaps. Church Stage Designs, in addition to that, we’ve also talked about doing some, um, some customized edging. So instead of a straight, flat edge, like most of our keystone springs come with, we’ve talked about doing kind of like a curved at a just to kind of make it look a little bit different. Uh, and then also taking and changing the actual wow, the actual physical size of the screen.

So from a, typically one of our keystone screen, 16 by nine, a 16 by nine projection screen or a 32 by 18 years projection screen with that keystone screen a ago with their Georgetown, Texas. Uh, we’d be talking about a 40 by 12 screen with the curved edges. Um, so yeah, so this, uh, this church stage designs, this stage backdrop that would be creating super simple, super simple to build a. So you as a tie up your first row of connectors, use the black expanded connector. So those give you your one inch, uh, you’re one inch separation between, uh, between panels. Once those are our zip tied up, you a bolt on your first bolt, on your first row of panels. Uh, with Keith, we’ve, you’re doing alternating with the keystone so that we get are a weed are cool. Like, uh, oh, excuse me. Um, you get are cool. I’m cooperative. Ultimately adds look, once you started attaching those, see have, have those with the bolt through the panel in a wing nut on the backside. They tied together. Uh, so we, we typically on those we use a nylon. We not so that they disappear.

And then. So what we’ll do for this, uh, for this setup that we’re talking about is we’ll go through and we’ll build the entire screen as a whole, uh, putting on the custom edges that curve. Then once we do that, we’ll go through and we’ll pull out the specific panels where we want to put moving lights and they’ll be just as easy as I’m building around it just because then we can have a huge volunteer team work on building the whole thing with us and then at the end pull out the specific panels based on, based on the room, if we ever have to change anything, like say for example a say it’s actually a little bit taller than the measurements were given, waiting to make it, we need to move, you know, a couple of the holes were moving lights down. Um, you know, that gives us the flexibility to, in the moment when we’re looking at, in placing our lights to make adjustments to get the best possible stage design a or a backdrop design a okay.
And then moving on from there. So we are mentoring, you know, we zip tie up those connectors. We bolt on the first row. After that we put another row connectors bolting those onto the first row of panels. Uh, and then as we bolt on the next set, we have bolt on another set of another set of panels after the panels and other roads, connectors and so on and so forth. We’ll repeat this process so we get to the ground. Um, so yeah, um, another thing I wanted to mention is, Church Stage Designs, is our turnaround time. So for this particular project, uh, it’s happen pretty quick, uh, because they, they just moved into a new building and moved from one building to a new one a because they’re growing and they need some help with their stages are equipped. So we’re going gonna have the, will have the standard pieces are already in stock ready to ship and the custom pieces should be ready to ship a little bit later this week probably by Tuesday.

So if the word, our plan is for the order to close Monday and the product will be ready to ship Tuesday. Um, so for a one day turnaround for our custom product, that’s pretty incredible. It’s unheard of whether the stage design industry and we’re pretty proud of that because we really love providing a great product in a unhurt Alzheimer time turn around and just going over people people’s expectations. I want to own our product to beat the best to be the thing that people go. We have scenes. They’re awesome. I want to use them again because our whole goal in everything we do is to serve the church and to serve our clients well. Whether it be a church or a corporate client, we want to serve our clients well. We want to be the, we want to be the chick filet of state of stage design.

So chick fil a, chick fil a, also known as to use this chicken is probably the best restaurant in the entire world if you’ve never been there. Uh, not because they do anything that’s like outstandingly different as far as their chicken. It’s hampered. It’s breaded chicken, it’s a, it’s good ingredients, but it’s good food. However, more than that, their attention to detail is what sets them apart from others. And that’s how I want us to be. I one our attention to detail to show people that we care about them and for us to continually improve, uh, so that, um,
you know, so that’s a blessing guard customers and so that it makes your customers lives easier. Our product is a, is a time saving product. Church Stage Designs, so with that, with it being a time saving product, you know, we want to save time not only on the setup and the tear down, uh, or you know, on the design process, but also on the process of getting this out to you on the process of a customer support if you have any questions. Um, so yeah, so that’s a, that’s a few of our goals with, with what we do in everything and I know that it’s probably something you’ve heard before in our podcast. It’s just important to us to, to create that wonderful stage backdrop that’s supported by even better customer service. Um, so yeah, so back to our projection dropped. We were talking about, uh, so specifically with his production drop, we’re also talking about doing the lighting for it.

So there’s projection drop would have up and down lights, uh, with some leds, probably Galatians six, part 200, uh, those, uh, specific leds work really good with our stage backdrop. Um, they’re relatively cheap and I found they’re pretty good lights. Um, and another thing, a lot of people are kind of are always asking what’s, what’s the best led for my, for my stage, drop for my stage, seen it for my church stage designs. Uh, and that’s really, um, it’s really up to your budget, your budget, how often you want to spend money. Uh, so particularly our product is one of the few products that whites incredibly well regardless of the regardless of the, uh, uh, the type of white on it, even a cheap light’s gonna look good on our product because it’s such a reflective product. Whereas with some other products that, that’s not the case.

So, uh, the, the, what I was saying about the, um, about how much money do you want to spend and how often you want to spend it. So typically this is a, this is a generalization, but it’s a pretty accurate generalization when you’re working with leds. Uh, the cheaper one, the cheaper the led you by the shorter it’s going to last, that more expensive led, the longer it’s going to last. It’s very overgeneralized, um, thing, but it’s pretty true for most circumstances. Church Stage Designs, so, uh, for us, for example, we bought some really cheap leds for our trade show booth, knowing that within a year or two we’re probably gonna have to replace them, but we specifically did that, uh, because we wanted to show people that, you know, we have $100 led and our scenic still looks great. Uh, so, um, so yeah. Uh, let’s see what else I can tell you.

Uh, oh yeah, we’re back on the protection drops. I’m sorry, as you guys may know, uh, I skipped around a little bit, so my apologies on that. So we’re talking about the projection stage backdrop. I’m about the stage backdrop for our friends down in Texas, the keystone screen that we’re doing projection and Church Stage Designs, so in addition to those we’re going to do uplights and down for led applies and deadlines to add some color. But in addition to that, we’re going to do a 12 k projector on the front edge of that, on the front of that, that projection screen. Uh, so the reason we’re doing this is that, uh, it’s gonna make our, it’s going to make a, give us the ability to do words or graphics on top of a, on top of that screen, which is going to be look really great. We’ve done that in a lot of other campuses for life church, a church. There’s a bunch of different, a bunch of different churches that we’ve done for it. Oh, excuse me. In addition, we’ve been some special events where we’ve done that projection backdrops for when I’ve worked super great, uh, one that comes to mind immediately is the, uh, is the, um, one that comes to mind immediately as the, the production backdrop we did for a pulse dance, uh, which is a company out of Las Vegas.

They had a big, they’re big annual conference and we did a huge production drop for it. Really Great. Church Stage Designs, so, um, so yeah, so I hope that gives you a little bit of insight as to what we’re doing. Uh, and uh, maybe something to think about if you’re looking into doing a production stage backdrop or something similar. Uh, I’d love to chat with you.
