ANSWERING A HARD QUESTION
I sometimes get asked “Why do you charge to come look at my church for Environmental Projection?” Because I care enough about doing Environmental Projection well in your space, and I want YOU to care about it too.
When I come out to your church, I bring projectors so we can see just how Environmental Projection will look in your worship space. I also meet with you and and your staff to talk about your current projection, lighting, and anything else in your room that involves creating an environment conducive to worship. It’s a fun and eye-opening day! After everyone has a chance to see the Environmental Projection, I do a technical design where I look at dozens of variables that can only be seen while in the room. Lighting, angles and colors of walls, shadow issues, lensing, cabling, mounting options…etc.
It’s not something I take lightly and it is not simply shining projectors on a wall. On a spiritual level; it is something deeper that has to be shown properly in the ACTUAL worship space and FELT and EXPERIENCED by your leadership. I take pride and care in helping churches use Environmental Projection well and tastefully, and my agenda isn’t to sell you gear. I don’t sell gear. I don’t push Projector A over Projector B because I simply do not make commission. My goal is to find the right gear that fits your room, worship style, PEOPLE, and budget.
After that design session day; I go to the dealer that is one of the nation’s leaders in providing churches with video systems, and give you a detailed quote for EVERYTHING you will need for an Environmental Projection system. Once your church purchases the gear, I provide an oversight of the installation (done by the dealer) to make sure it’s just how we want it to be, as well as setup all the software and masks that are custom to your room. Following installation I spend an evening with your team going over how it works technically, but more importantly how to best use it for your service the next Sunday. I give you several gigabytes of content to get started; and help plan for your service.
My goal is to help you use lighting and projection for visual worship…better. That looks different for every church community but the conversation I have with pastors and tech people are the same in every church: What is your church wanting to say visually? What are you passionate about? What are your frustrations? From those conversations we are able to help YOU and your community do visual worship…better, and become better visual worshipers.
