31 Days Of Plots

31 Days Of Plots: Prestonwood's The Gift Of Christmas

To celebrate the achievements of 2018 and to welcome all the prospects of 2019, Live Design is conducting 31 Days Of Plots. Every day during the month of December 2018, we will highlight a different lighting design, from across theatre, concert tours, corporate events, and more. 

Prestonwood Baptist Church in Plano, Texas has a long history of presenting some of the most creative and cutting-edge Christmas productions in the country. UVLD's Matt Webb, one of Live Design/LDI's 30 Under 30, has handled the production and lighting design for the holiday spectacular The Gift Of Christmas since 2015. The design features an all new show deck, 150′-wide video surface made up of 16 individual panels tracked to move in pairs for varying configurations. The panels open to reveal a 350-person choir framed above and below by high-res LED surfaces.
