Building a Teaching Series – Part 4

 —  April 12, 2012 — 1 Comment

We have not put many set designs together over the years, but when we do it seems to draw our students into the series more.  If you are looking for ides on basic stage design, check out Church Stage Design Ideas for some inspiration.

PLAN IN ACTION: In our current series, we are kickin’ it old school with an overhead projector. In the opening image you see a black curtain with our logo “re:” shining on it.  That is an overhead projector throwing a transparency on the curtain.  We could have paid $60 and purchased a gobo but I did not want to spend any money.  You can see what we did here and here.

We have used that pink foam insulation from the home repair stores to carve and create objects and characters for our stage.  Here is a video I found on Vimeo walking us through the creation of a set design from Brandon Baker.  I met Brandon Baker at the Simply Youth Ministry Conference this year, this is great work Brandon, thanks for sharing!

What are some of the tools you are using to create stage design?  Share a comment, post a link to an image…

  1. Thanks for the shout out. Love the creative solution. Where, pray tell, can I find a piece of technology like this mysterious “overhead projector”?
