Communicating through various forms of media to enhance your connection with the story of God's love.
The Technical and Media Departments are a key part of the Church. If it weren’t for these teams of talented individuals, we would be without sound, lights, media, video and special effects…all of the things that make a service run smoothly.
Communicating through various forms of media enhance our ability to connect with people each Sunday and through the rest of the week.

The Big Picture.
A new theatrical presentation to Church on the Queensway this year, that has a more intimate staging. The complexity of staging brough us to using three rear-projected screens that provide the shows backdrops. The benefit of course was having the flixbilty of digital imagery for the show.
We accomplish this look by using three separate screens hung from the lighting rig. Each screen had a designated projector that were controlled with a Matrox Triple-Head-2GO. This allowed us to treat the three screens as one unified background display that could handle animated and static imagery.
Crazy Christmas 2014.
This year we wanted to added something new to the background of our larger than life set. Something lively and engaging that would also fill in some of the negative space above our set.
We decided to hang four large ornaments that we would project onto. Projection would allow us to make the ornaments come alive and match each scene throughout the musical.
Using Corrugated Plastic for the ornaments with some bedazzled glitter we used our centre projection system to light everything up. Using a combination of Keynote, Photoshop, ProPresenter 5 and Motion we created a projection template. Next, each scene had a video created to fill each of the four ornaments with colours, bobbly figurines and disco balls.
In the end we had a lively new addition to our set and our musical.
