Well, here is my round 1 entry to the MocOlympics. I decided to stretch the topic of Fire, to do an office building, with Chris Phipson as the boss. enjoy! ;)
About this creation
Here we find our main character- Reporter Joe of the town newspaper staff, walking along searching for a juicy story. Well, clearly there is no news-worthy events happening here...
But Wait! Here comes a local resident, doing nothing! What a hot scoop!
Joe: Excuse me sir, could I get a word? Thanks. What has inspired you to do nothing on this fine day?
Resident: Wait, are you filming me? What is this?!?!?!?!?
Well, this has been Reporter Joe, bringing you the hottest news, as it happens!
The next day....
Joe: You wanted to see me boss?
Chris: Yes, please come in Joe.
Chris: A little closer, and a little to the left... Right there!
Chris: Well, I read your last article, and I regret to inform you that you will no longer be writing for this company. You're fired!
Joe: No! You can't do this to me Chris!
Chris: I'm sorry...
*Chris moves his chair over to the mysterious flashing red button on the end of his desk, and presses it.
A trapdoor suddenly opens underneath Joe, and, due to the laws of gravity, he falls down into the unkown...
Joe: Well, what is this place? How do I get out? Do we get gluten-free meals?
Brad: This is Chris' Dungeon. This is where he sends all the employees that he's fired.
There's really no way out. And I think the meals have unhealthy amounts of gluten in them...
Joe: But, how long will I be here?
Well, I wish best of luck to all my opponents, and the judges, who have an unimaginable task ahead of them, judging all these entries. Oh, and sorry about Chris looking almost exactly like my sig-fig, that was the best I could do of Mr. Phipson. I will eventually post a moc of all my mechs (I have 3).
Funny scene, construction is basic, but it works! Bringing Phipmeister into the mix, always a bonus, as well as a trap door. Going a little further with the room designs to create a better sense of scale would have helped a lot. By choosing You're Fired instead of just Fire, you are opting to impose a dramatic aspect onto the creation. The whole thing is clever, but not feeling the drama. That's probably where Cody G did better with a similar interpretation. But either way, good work and good luck in the MIT!
Well, Iíve got good news and bad news. Letís start with the bad: you didnít make the top 64 to move on to round 2 (Your final score is 19). I know, bummer. BUT! The good news is: Hans Dendauw has organized the MIT tournament for those who placed between 65th and 128th. This is a fully recognized event the parallels the official MOC-Oís, just with a different set of contestants, and we encourage you to enter the group for more chances at great prizes!
