M.O. Round 1- FIRE!
This is obviously my first entry for the 2011 MocOlympics. After sitting for a few hours sketching out ideas that involved combining a bunch of the catagories, I decided to just go with fire instead. Also, due to unforeseen circumstances, I'm in the middle of packing my house for a move. In other words, most of my collection is in one big, unsorted bin of uglyness. I had a hell of a time sifting through it for the parts to build this! On top of that, my camera's lens is buggered so I was forced to use my iphone for the photo shoot. The lower resolution actually ended up giving most of the photos a smokey look that I'm quite happy with. Anyway, I'll stop whining like a kindergardener and let you get on to the photos.
About this creation
MocOlympics link!



Here we have a brave fire fighter putting his life on the line.




And the victim trying to keep the flames at bay with fire extinguishers.


The blaze engulfs the room.




The hero continues his assault on the inferno.


Here we have the set without all that dramatic mood lighting. The crappy resolution on the camera really shows in these photos. I tried my best to clean them up but unfortunately, I could only do so much with crappy photos.


All along the top of the front section I tried to create the effect of smoke escaping the fiery room. Not too bad, if I do say so myself.


The fire fighter...


And his water dousing action!


The rear section of the set.


some fire and smoke surrounded by charred debris.




Our afro wielding victim and his trusty fire extinguishers.


More fire.


And you might be wondering how I created all that mood lighting. Quite simple actually! I taped some trans bricks onto a couple LED flashlights. Then built a BIG black rack that is so unsturdy that it required two dumbbells to keep the legs from falling out from underneath it. Then stuck the (now colored) flashlights onto said unsturdy rack and added a few orange light bricks to light up the dark areas! Crude but effective, eh?


Northern Notes: To-Do list edition!

1.Buy new camera
2.Re-sort LEGO
3.Take a Tylonol or two
4.Thank the judges for putting up with mine and everyone else's BS
5.Buy milk
6.Rinse, lather, repeat from step 3.

A brick-built flashlight rack? Dude that's hardcore purism. Well, except for the flashlights. Excellent!

Very clever the way you treated the smoke. In fact, your "crappy" pics make a great result, just like a real fire (in my modest opinion). Hope you reach R.2...

Burnin down the house! Love all the action and "mood lighting".

The lighting is really cool. Especially when you explained how you did it. The overall look is very convincing and I think you did an awesome job on this MOC. On another note, it's a good thing that guy with the fire extiguisher didn't get too close to those flames! That fro would have been toast! :P

A very classy building. Or, it would have been if it wasn't on fire. Kind of takes the classiness out of it.

Great job on the lighting, even with the crude rigging, it all works nicely. The smoke gives a real feeling of movement to the build. Good luck.

I like this very much. The smoke is well done and - despite of what you may say- also the photography. The grains are a result of low light and a camera with a small sensor. It. Just happens when you want to create this kind of mood.

Incredible! The smoke effect is great!

Nice entry, and to anyone else commenting, this is why you don't buy your bong at a cheapo place, it will break, and it will catch your roof on fire.
