Stage Design Tip

Using Black Space

We often focus on lighting in our stage design. But have you considered black or negative space when designing? A good graphic designer uses white space (in our case, black space) on the page to give the eyes room to rest and to separate design elements. A stage designer can use the same concepts to give the audience a rest from the action and to help each design element stand out from the rest.

This is one of the reasons I believe strongly in a black back wall and a dark room. Light shines brighter when it's surrounded by darkness. You'll get the biggest impact from your light when you're careful with the darkness too.

@VisualWorshiper - I dream of a church leadership that let's its artists plan a worship service. It probably won't have a 3-point sermon *gasp*
@joshcollesano - If you’re an artist/creative you must constantly ask ‘where is Jesus in my art?’ otherwise your attempt is rooted in vanity.
@b_rewster - Creativity is an act of worship. Treat the process that way. Do it unto God not ego.
