Backdrops



These are our backdrops for our series WINDS OF CHANGE... you may think it odd that we have windmill and wind turbines in the church--but we sit in the midst of some of largest Wind turbine farms in the US (sorry California!) Our metaphor for this series is the wind (same wind--different uses); how the same God is still doing amazing things and changing lives today like he did in biblical times. These backdrops came from BACKDROPS.US (www.backdrops.us). They are airbrushed on to light weight muslin and have a hemmed pocket at the top for shearing on to a pole (we just clamped them up.   I sent them two High Res pictures from our series graphic and they got them back to me in 9 days from the time I ordered. Amazing. We have people come and stare at them. Had a funeral in there this week--they wanted them left up (that's a change since we've taken everything down before for funerals). We're very pleased with them and will use them as a resource again.

We built two light boxes with backlit paper from HP (re: large scale printer post back in February). We used leftover light fixtures that were taken down from an office (thanks JVO for the suggestion) and basically built a frame and blacked out the sides. These will transform for our summer camp later this year. It's given me an idea to do some taller ones or different shapes and use the backlit material or fixture covers painted to give a neat effect.
