This weekend at Calvary Church we rolled out an environmental projection system for our Easter stage design. There are two components that I thought I’d share with you: the projection system and the wall we created to project on. Note: It’s worth saying that neither of these concepts are our creations. We borrowed and custom-tailored them both for our needs. Deron Yevoli is really the mastermind behind our setup (and I think he took a lot of inspiration from Stephen Proctor. The Projection System We are using a setup using a Mac Pro tower and an iMac with ProPresenter and ProVideoPlayer from Renewed Vision. Below is an overly simplified diagram of how the system works. Basically, we cue videos for our main side screens with ProVideoPlayer. When we fire a video, it automatically triggers ProPresenter to play a corresponding environmental video that is set out to two projectors using a TripleHead2Go hardware device. ProPresenter also sends out lyrics (which are keyed over our IMAG or our side screen motion videos through our switcher) and graphics to a stage display (LCD TV mounted on our back wall). Though it sounds pretty complicated, it’s quite easy to set up, especially given all the tutorials from Renewed Vision. The Wall The second key element to our environmental projection was the 22 ft by 45 ft wall we built out of coroplast to display the projection on. We basically created a wood frame and stapled the coroplast sheets to it to make a textured wall to project on. When we’re not projecting, the coroplast makes a great surface to put lights on. We’re pretty pleased with the way it turned out. Below are some photos of it. If you’re thinking about doing a project like this and we can be a resource to you, please don’t hesitate to contact me!
