Great Projection at Seeds 2014

March 22, 2014 | In Church, Production

This morning I took a quick look at the first night from Seeds Conference. Seeds is a ministry and blog from Church On The Move in The States that many church creatives I know use for inspiration and resources. Recently, we’ve used some of their insights in the development of Church News for St. Faith’s.

This year, a scrim was used around the edge of the stage to project images and shadows on to. It certainly made a great visual, and probably helped people focus on the words and music of the opening song, Oceans, rather than the musicians on stage – which is often something people are cautious about when it comes to doing music and production well.

I thought it both looked great, and enhanced the lyrical content of the song through the choice of the media that was projected.

Take a look at the first 10 minutes to get an idea of what I’m talking about!

This wasn’t the first time I’ve seen a scrim used – the first in this kind of context was at Hillsong Conference about 5 years ago. We also used a scrim at NTE last year to diffuse a Martin EC LED screen behind the stage that we used for song words, theme graphics and some video content. However, I think with recent advances in projection, this kind of visual design can be used in much more interactive and expressive ways than even just a few years ago!
