MO Round 5 : Tom Remy Vs LWC Guy – Society’s Fault
My entry for the 2012 MocOlympics Round 5
About this creation
The link to the 2012 MocOlympics
...and to my antipodean opponent’s very different entry, LWC Guy. Good luck, mate!

WARNING! This MOC may not be suitable for young children. For the rest of you, remember it’s only humour…

"A certain point of view: Tell us an adventure story, but here's the twist. Tell us the story from the perspective of the villain! People aren't just "evil" for the sake of being evil (except for Dr. Doofenschmirtz of course) so now's your chance to make us root for the bad guy! What's his motivation? What does he want? And why does he feel that his (evil) way is the only way to get it done? You may choose already existing fiction or create your own, the choice is yours."

It’s a personal take on the category so I let my imagination go wild, I hope I’m not off the topic… Now enjoy!


* * *

In a (very) near future…


**Loud and too emphatic music**
“Good evening ladies and gentlemen! And welcome to this new number of “Society’s Fault”, the talk-reality-show that gives really bad guys a chance to make their point. I’m James Gentle and your host for tonight. And tonight we have a very special guest who murdered several dozens of people, the famous psychiatrist, gastronome, sociopath and man-eater…”


“… HANNIBAL LECTER!!”
**Whistles and boos**
Hannibal: “Thank you, thank you so much!”


“Good evening Dr Lecter.”
“Good evening to you, James!”


“First, I’d like to remind our audience the concept of the show. We’ll be going through our guest’s adventurous life, with exclusive documents and interviews. During the show, our televiewers will call our switchboard and vote. Right now, the “Evil-meter” behind me is neutral. So, is Hannibal Lecter the anthropophagous physician we all know? Or is it just…”
The audience: “…SOCIETY’S FAULT?!?”


“Thank you! We’ll begin with some documents redrawing your prestigious career.”
“You flatter me!...”


“Benjamin Raspail, flutist in the Baltimore Philharmonic Orchestra. Your first acknowledged victim.”
“Ah, Ben… He really was a GOOD guy, though a very bad musician…”


“Hum!... Onto the second picture. This one’s iconic of your nickname: Hannibal the cannibal.”
“Ah, that famous picture! It’s a shame everyone remembers me like this… I’m actually nicer without this mask.”


“Special agent Paul Krendler. You drugged him with heroin, opened his skull and shared parts of his brain with... him and former FBI agent Clarice Starling. Then you fled with her to Argentina. Are you still living together?”
“Not anymore, I got fed up with her.”
**Laughs**


“It seems you’ll need to sell yourself a little to get a bit of popularity…”
“Hey, I improved the quality of an orchestra, supplied my psychiatrist with interesting work, and eliminated a dishonest FBI agent... I don’t see any problem here!”


“Well, your score isn't that bad anymore… but it's far from perfect! Perhaps it will get better after our main sequence, the "nostalgia" sequence?”
“I sure hope so!”


“Now Dr Lecter, prepare for a shock! We managed to find your adoptive son! I see you’re speechless… So, live from Texas, it’s our young reporter Cody Grease! Cody, can you hear us?”


Cody: “Yes, yes indeed, James! Right now, I’m standing in front of a house, a regular house but for Dr Lecter, it may be the house of lost memories!...”


“In this very house, Dr Lecter raised a boy, teaching him how to be a man. I’m approaching the hall…”


“I can already smell a traditional meal, probably cooked the way our guest taught his son… I am now entering the house.”


“It’s a, er… cosy lobby… I’m s-sure it brings back touching m-m-memories to our guest… I hear someone… The suspense is terrible…”


“The d-door is opening… N-not really sure it was a good idea after all, James…”
James: “You’re doing well, Cody! Go on!”


**Chainsaw noise**





James: “Well er… Thank you Cody, we’ll get back to you later.”
Hannibal: “Good old Leathy! Always in good shape!”


“Dear televiewers, remember you have only a few minutes left to vote for or against our guest. Dr Lecter, how are you feeling, seeing your son after decades apart?”
“It’s good to see he’s feeling well, and always wears a smile on his face!”


“We also have retrieved different pictures of him…”
“I remember this! It was his first baseball match, and he won! He even defeated his own team! Too bad he quit playing afterwards, he would have become a killer!”


“Speaking of killer…”
“His butchery graduation! I didn't even know there was a photograph of it… I was very proud of him!”


“Dr Lecter, you finally touched our audience! The evil-meter is balanced again! Will it reach the top? We'll know more after the "intimacy" sequence. For those not familiar with our show, the intimacy sequence gives us a peek at our guest's everyday life. This was filmed a few days ago by our reporter Graham Ham.”


“Welcome into my modest kitchen, Graham! I'm going to cook a stuffed turkey for thanksgiving, and I will donate it to the children hospital. Will you assist me?”
“That would be an honor!”


“You have quite a large kitchen!”
“Yes, it's my favourite room. I took inspiration from a french restaurant in which I spent a lot of time. Remember I'm French!”


“And here are my tools, everything we need for this turkey!”
“What will it be stuffed with?”
“Ah-ah! That's a secret recipe... I will ask you to turn off the cameras for a while.”

Two hours later...


“Well there it is! Too bad Graham had to go before I finished it...”


“Now I just have to put it in my fridge, along with my famous head cheeses...”
(NB Thoses weird blue and yellow things are Shannon's and Chris Roach's heads... Kangaroos and Optimus's are very tough to build at this scale!)


Hannibal: “It seems my charity work granted me your unconditional vote! Thanks everyone, and remember: it's only "Society’s Fault"!”

A few random shots…


The angles on this set were terrible…


…But these armchairs were really fun to design!


This build took me most of the time, and it’s only seen in 4 pictures! :-/


Leatherface’s lobby, my favourite part of the MOC!

* * *

Commentary : This one was very tough! I hope the little twist I made with the category is OK… I promised Cody G to feature him in the MOC, but eventually I decided to feature every judges, the more the merrier! :D There are very few play features in this MOC, but I thought very few kids would want to play with such sets… Photoshop was only used to clean the pictures, and write the end credits, the “screen insertions” are real forced perspective. Well, it’s almost 4 AM here, so I can’t do much more… Hopefully that’s enough! Good luck again to LWC Guy who put a lot of effort in his THREE DAYS build, I wouldn’t have built as much as him in such a short time!

Thanks everyone for viewing and especially the judges! Good luck to everybody in the “Elite 8” (that’s classy)! Please rate and comment…

very funny MOC, in a deplorable reprehensible, but very funny, sort of way. Nice builds too, you captured the eeriness of that house the dupe reported walked into really well.

The chairs are my favourite part! Really creative.

Hey Tom, I'd like to personally apologize to you and all the other contestants for dropping off the face of MOCpages when I was supposed to be judging, especially since you featured me in your work! With family obligations and near-finals homework and projects, I completely neglected the MocOlympics, and for that I'm sorry. Luckily, Kelso and Moodswim were able to help out! Congrats on advancing!

Quoting LWC guy ...And that puts me out. Nice job mate! Thanks for a great match, I'll be rooting for you in the next round!
Dear sir, you are a gentleman! Thanks! I will remember the Kiwis' performance in these games! I really enjoyed competing against you, and I wish you luck in the TFOL's prize race. If I'm correct, you still have a chance! See you!

Quoting Stuart Lucas You're really proving to be one of this year's most consistently fantastic builders! Great armchairs, great sets, nice the way you used the TV screen and the evil-meter. The story is very well told too... I'd like to see you up against Stuart Delahay in one of the remaining rounds. Twisted, but with our judges, that might well count in your favour!
Thank you Stuart! And what's better: you were right about everything, since I'm against Stuart Delahay next round!

Quoting LukeClarenceVan The Revanchist Fantastic! The set is superb, and the house is killer. Love the exterior especially, very realistic. Excellent job on the story as well, unfortunately it doesn't seem all that far-fetched, an interesting commentary on the standards of entertainment and societies changing views. Great work and good luck!
Thanks for this nice comment, man! But besides the commentary, I mostly had fun writing and building this! See you next round!

Quoting the judges
Thank you so much! I knew this was a little twisted, so your vote means a lot! I'll try to be at my best for the next round, against a fantastic builder! Better start tearing this stuff apart...

Quoting David Alexander Smith The forced perspective tips this into brilliance. The humour is great and just dark enough to appeal to me. Good luck!
I understand you appreciate dark... Thanks a lot, David!

Quoting Stuart Delahay Mwuhahahahaha! Brilliant stuff. Love the humour and the use of an established villain gave you some details to play with that lots of people will recognise. Great builds throughout - I played with that idea of screens a few years ago but you did it much better with the forced perspective. Well done and good luck!
Thanks man! Out of curiosity, do you have a link to your "screens" MOC? See you soon...

Quoting Heath 'kik36' Flor LMFAO just a bit disturbing, but one of my all-time favorite villains! Excellent job, and good luck with the judges!
Thought you liked "disturbing"? ;)

Quoting Chris Phipson Both you and LWC had great stories and takes on the category! My vote goes with you based on the builds themselves and use of forced perspective. Good luck with the other judges! ~ Chris.
Thank you Mister! About the FP, it turned out surprisngly better than I expected!

Thanks! Wasn't THAT the quarterfinals? ;D

You got my vote. I would've liked to have seen LWC's build if he didn't have real-world interuptions but the rules don't take account of that. I loved all of the little TV scenes you built.

twisted - but a great build - this one was a little hard to judge due to the differnt approaches, but despite you decapitating all the judges you have my vote!

Quoting LWC guy Wow, great job Tom! All your builds are awesome, the house has got to be my favorite :) The angular action of the lobby is very impressive, and those view through the screen seriously look photoshopped, very good job! Good luck! (not tooooo much luck, though :) )
Thanks a lot! About those FP, I guess I learnt a few things from that optical illusion category! I wish you as much luck as you wish me! :)

Loads to like with this build, such as the FP screen, the technique for the walls of the house and the story arc. I also like the two arm chairs, whose legs are made from hands...

I'll try to come back and read the story/writ-up when I've got more time, but just encase I forget to revisit this: some incredible builds here Mr. Remy! I'm particularly impressed with the porch and the TV. Well done and good luck!

Wow, awesome! I love the 'head cheeses' and though I love cheese, would most likely refuse a slice if offered. Best of luck!
