LakeShore Architectural Projection

One of the areas I’m enjoying being creative is with the lighting and visuals we use in our services at LakeShore. Here’s some of the tools we have to create an atmosphere in the sanctuary:

– 16:9 Center Screen: We use this for video playback (preservice countdown, video announcements, bumpers, etc…, visual themes during worship, main sermon points
– Two 4:3 Side Screens: We use these for announcement loops before service, lyrics during worship, scripture passages during the sermon
– Three Architectural Projectors: They are the same feed off the same computer. I’d like to add a Matrox Triple Head 2 Go in the future. We don’t use the center screen as the sight lines blind the band and singers
– 12 Par Can lights with color scrollers

These are a lot of elements to change during a service. But I like simplicity and themes. So when this last sermon series started I wanted to create visuals and lighting that echoed the sermon graphics.

Here’s the sermon graphics that the children’s church pastor/ graphic design handed off to me:

I took the wave elements and created:
-Wall Graphics
-Lyric Loops
-Center Eye Candy Loop (no lyrics)

I then used the lights and used the blue, yellow and green color palette. Here’s how it ended up looking:

It’s a lot of work at the beginning of a series but then we kept this look throughout the series. I have to say I really like it. It’s using the media with a purpose. It’s not just random images/ loops but setting a tone for a season.

If you want to see some of the HD elements in motion you can check out LakeShore’s YouTube Channel.

Here are the various elements embeded (RSS Readers will have to check the original post)
