Church Of All Nations
Orlando, FL 2012
The Church Of All Nations (COAN) theatre at the Holy Land Experience in Orlando, FL is a 2000 seat theatre built to be used for live and televised events. This project started from the ground up and SEAL was involved, providing design support and integration services. The system had many challenges in the design as the large decorative proscenium hindered many normal lighting positions. The design used a handful of Varlite VL1100TRS to help deal with this situation and instead of the traditional battens with 3 color gels, hidden in the proscenium are Chroma Q ColorForce 72s and 48s to add layers of light to the stage. The front wash is an entire ETC conventional rig of a combination of over 350 Source Four Pars and Elipsoidals. Additionally, as it is to be used for broadcast, 24 Arri Fresnels are used to give the super flat wash Arri Fresnels are known for. For moving lights, 50 Varilite VL3500s were used for profiles while Martin MAC 301s and 101s were used out over the house to bring the experience from on stage into the audience. For more color in various parts of the theatre and used in shows, 48 Chauvet Colorado LED pars are used. SEAL was responsible not only for providing equipment but the initial hang and commissioning of the system.
