The Television Room
Built for Brickworld 2013 as part of the "Wonka" collaborative. These builds represent all the chocolaty goodness of Mr. Willy Wonka's factory, the demise of undeserving children, and the simple heroics of Charlie Bucket. Welcome to The Television Room!
About this creation
As soon as Charlie had his dark glasses on, he was able to look around him in comfort. He saw a long narrow room. The room was painted white all over. Even the floor was white, and there wasn't a speck of dust anywhere. From the ceiling, huge lamps hung down and bathed the room in a brilliant blue-white light. The room was completely bare except at the far ends. At one of these ends there was an enormous camera on wheels, and a whole army of Oompa-Loompas was clustering around it, oiling its joints and adjusting its knobs and polishing its great glass lens.

The Oompa-Loompas were all dressed in the most extraordinary way. They were wearing bright-

red space suits, complete with helmets and goggles— at least they looked like space suits — and they were working in complete silence. Watching them, Charlie experienced a queer sense of danger. There was something dangerous about this whole business, and the Oompa-Loompas knew it. There was no chattering or singing among them here, and they moved about over the

huge black camera slowly and carefully in their scarlet space suits.

At the other end of the room, about fifty paces away from the camera, a single Oompa-Loompa (also wearing a spacesuit) was sitting at a black table gazing at the screen of a very large television set.

Love the floor design on this. It's the things that most don't notice but attention should be given to that really make certain builds pop! ~ Chris.

Quoting M<0><0>DSWIM ! Besides the obvious action taking place, I noticed alot of nice subtle details like the patterns in the floor and windows. The camera is pretty cool, too.

Quoting Stuart Lucas I'm not sure anyone else builds Lego food as convincingly as you do... that Wonka bar looks good enough to eat. But then, so does the whole scene! Fantastic stuff!
Thanks Stuart! But I think Bruce Lowell's donuts, Keith Goldman's TV dinner, and Dave Shaddix's breakfast are pretty appetizing. ~DK

Quoting Achintya Prasad Very nice work! Especially love that floor; I can't imagine how those were done! Very true to the book, and the movie! A well deserved 5/5
Thanks AP! The floor is made up of SNOT modules. 2x4 arch elements on the ends with 1x1 plates on the bottom of one side. In the middle is a 2x3 plate with 2x2 tiles on each end and a 1x2 tile in the middle. Does that make sense? ~DK
