At the age of 16, Elliott Mountford set up his Ti22 lighting design company with a view to providing lighting and video integration on live shows. Little more than a few months later he was handling his first arena show at Wembley.
Now still only 19, and from a background in programming, Elliott has developed into a full lighting designer. Most recently he has been out with Charli XCX—with an armory of GLP fixtures for company, supplied by Liteup.

First Baptist Church Covington, in Covington, LA, has been an important part of Covington’s spiritual community since 1904, and over the last several decades, their growth in membership has necessitated several facility expansions. Their most recent iteration of growth brought with it a renewed focus on reaching future generations with the message of the Gospel. Working with HH Architects and Idibri AVL consultants, new educational space, community space, and a new auditorium were constructed. When it came to selecting equipment for the auditorium, Chroma-Q and A.C. Lighting Inc. received the privilege of playing a role in lighting this all-important communication space.
“We make significant use of volunteers in supporting our services and events,” says Barry Carpenter, the church’s technical director. “Therefore, volunteer-friendly control systems are critical for us. Vista by Chroma-Q®, our lighting control system, is advanced and powerful enough to pull off complex shows for the experienced user, yet simple enough for the untrained volunteer to operate.”

When British lighting designer Stu Dingley realized, back in 2018, that most of the acts he was servicing were Los Angeles based, he made the radical step of moving to California, believing that not only was it a great place to be based, but he could avoid the increasing commute.
Most recently he was approached by Meggan Mckenzie, creative director for Atlanta rapper Young Thug, to work alongside her in creating the production and lighting design, and bringing her ideas to life. He was soon dipping into the GLP toolbox in search of his solutions, coming up with the JDC1 hybrid strobes and impression X4 Bar 20 battens.

Bringing Light to Worship

Citizen Heights Church is a contemporary house of worship reaching the north-western Washington, DC community. However, they were experiencing a mismatch between their style/ministry goals, and the ability of their lighting system to support those goals.
“We had previously installed an LED video wall upstage,” says Joey Olmo, technical director at the church, “and our front lighting was not able to adequately light those standing downstage from the video wall. Additionally, our lighting console was difficult to use, and without a lighting expert in the congregation, training volunteers to run lighting was problematic.”
The church invited Kingdom Technology Partners (KTP), a trusted service provider for several years, to discuss their lighting challenges and recommend options for improvement.

Creating a Great Design on A Budget

In home_page, Lighting, Lighting Install News, Uncategorized, Web Articlesby Media

Many churches don’t know where to start when thinking about their lighting; what fixtures to get? Where to put them?  Do you need color or just white light? Why is lighting so expensive?  A myriad of questions often paralyze a church before a lighting upgrade project can even really begin.
The Gathering Place, in Vancouver, Washington, knows what goes into maximizing their lighting system.  Last year, they finished remodeling a small building and moved in.  Renovation and remodel projects nearly always run over budget and that affects other areas and this was no different.  Wishing to be the best stewards possible, they chose to utilize the fixtures from their mobile system and make a small investment in some LED color-changing back lighting and some uplighting for the back wall of the stage.
These were strategic purchases to help them build a system that could be added to in the future.  They had to balance current and near-future needs with budget realities and they did a great job as the results are eye-catching without being distracting.  Given that they were not recording video when they moved in, they decided to only light the center from the front.

“It’s been our long-term goal to offer live streaming on the Internet, and our recent camera and lighting purchases are designed to aid us in live streaming services and events,” says Erik Alkire, Lighting Designer at St. Andrew’s.

The church has six Panasonic cameras, four of them remotely controlled by the technical director and two manned on tripods.  Its extensive lighting complement includes 90 conventional fixtures plus some aging moving heads.

At Cedarview Community Church, we teach God’s word, prioritize worship, welcome God’s spirit, proclaim salvation, seek God’s face, serve God’s people and have a heart for missions.  As we strive to equip the local church body to grow and to be Christs’ extended hand to the community and world, we aim to do it with excellence and purpose by directing all attention to Jesus Christ. It’s important for the church to be focused on God’s word and to honor its authority over every aspect of our life and conduct.  With that comes a heart of worship, a sensitivity the Holy Spirit in line with New Testament Scriptures and desire to reach the lost. 

I have worked with Cedarview a few times. I actually attend the church and serve as their Technical Director, and over time – because of the age of the gear in the church – they needed to look at modernizing and replacements. In some cases, the church ran into emergency situations where gear needed to be replaced immediately.  As an integration contractor, we set up a stewardship approach which allows churches to plan for natural evolution for failure and obsolescence, identifying and planning for replacement equipment before it reaches a fail point.

The Summit Church is a Southern Baptist multi-site church that meets at eleven locations throughout the greater Raleigh-Durham area. Founded in 1961 with the mission ‘to create a movement of disciple-making disciples’, The Summit Church named J.D. Greear lead pastor in 2001, where he also serves as one of the church’s Directional Elders and a member of the Executive Team. Recently, the church decided to deploy three video walls at the Brier Creek Campus, which in addition to being the church’s main campus, also serves as the primary broadcast campus. To ensure their investment would help maximize the effectiveness of their services, the decision was made to install the Rhodium Series LED Video Display from Lakeland, FL-based Vanguard LED Displays.
DP Design of Milwaukee, WI, an AV design / build firm with a nationwide reach that specializes in the worship market, was contracted to design and install the new video display system at The Summit Church. Company founder and CEO David Price, who oversees the company’s sales, system design, and installations, elected to deploy a total of 240 Vanguard Rhodium Series P4 video display cabinets. He discussed the project.
