The theme, "Not Alone," from the story in 2 Kings 6:17, where Elisha asks God to show his servant the army of angels protecting them, made me want to make something where, at first glance, the eye would see something different than the second and third glances. I wanted the desolate tree silhouettes to be obvious, the angels would then emerge as one observed.
Painting the backdrop and decorating the stage:
We painted the backdrop black and filled in the light blue areas, I then went in with UV paint and made the angel highlights. The blacklights made the angels obvious.
