MocOlympics Round 3: LukeClarenceVan vs. Oliver Becker
About this creation
Welcome to my Round 3, Bracket 2, MocOlympics entry, against the talented Oliver Becker and his excellent entry. In the category "Non Animated Disney Movie" I've recreated a scene from Disney's 1954 film, 20000 Leagues Under the Sea.



Above is a reference image I was working with. Please excuse the bright flare in the middle - the only video of this scene I could find online used this flare to avoid being caught by Disney.

In the scene, the Nautilus submarine cruises over the ocean floor, with the light dying out as it goes deeper under the sea.



Here's a shot of the Nautilus silhouette. I made it brown and added some texture for realism, but the trans-dark blue wall I used to simulate the ocean robbed the final photos of any colour.



Another shot of the whole set-up. I'd experimented with a polarizing filter to cut down on reflections off the bricks - this rotation of the filter reduced the reflections on the lower left better than in the main shot, but failed to block a bright bit on the right. With both this shot and the main photo, I used two lights above the scene to match the increasing darkness as the water gets deeper, and walled off the sides with black pieces to avoid light leaking in from the edges.

The undersea effect is really great and "realistic" in my opinion. Beautiful job.

Thanks to everyone who's commented, I'm sorry I've not been able to reply to all of them. Judges, thanks for your fast work, and all the time and effort it takes to keep the games running smoothly. The MocOlympics always brings me out of hibernation, and it was a pleasure to compete again this year. Oliver, congratulations on advancing. Your zany trees and complex dragon earned you a well deserved victory, and I wish you the best of luck in the next round.

You did a very cool technique here. However, your opponent's build has a lot more going for it so he gets my vote. Thanks for entering and hope to see you next time! (P.s. you have a LOT of clear blue 1x2 bricks :O )

very different entry to your opponent. Hmmm, they may go with this. You have certainly made it a choice between styles rather than execution cos this is perfectly done for what it is. Great entry.

Really an interesting idea worth exploring. I wish that there was more of the ambiance and mystery that the movie portrayed. And Kirk, one of my all time heroes. My vote goes to Oliver as there is more of a presence with the final image.
