Visual Aid Props
We are stepping it up a notch at our church and beginning to use stage props or visual aids. I have seen this done a lot at contemporary churches. As the Creative Director I have been tasked with heading up the team to get the ball rolling on it. The current series involves getting where you should be. I used a graphic with a GPS on it. The stage is decorated with a few road signs and traffic lights. This really gives a cool effect and we have had a lot of people giving us positive feedback.I am seeking out other individuals involved with this and would like to hear your ideas and stories about some of the stuff you've done in the past. For instance, there is a church in North Carolina that did a series on love and had a real VW beetle on stage painted like Herbie the Love Bug.
We use props weekly. Currently we have a baseball theme with a backstop on stage, home plate, the pitchers line and third base down the center aisle and brick pattterned paper/cardboard on the wall 3' up behind the stage to look like the ball park.
We once had a pickup truck on stage, but had to take it down because it took up to much stage.
We have had a 8' pill bottle, scaffolding, wheel barrows and wooden people cutouts with construction vests on. We tried to put the drums up on the scaffolding but could not get it to work. We also drapped our screen with red velet and made a lit marquee in the lobby above the main entrance with the sermon title on it for our series about movies.
Once we had a large (16' wide) wood box that looked like a TV complete with a projecter to send an image to the "TV" Screen.
Those are the ones that come to mind.
