MocAthalon 2014: The Note
C'est la vie, C'est la mort. (Such is life, such is death.)
About this creation
Team: Brick Runners

Category: Forced Perspective:
Any subject matter and size you wish, but the main focal point must be a forced perspective shot for that is what you will be judged on, how well you depicted the forced perspective.

MocAthalon 2014



Just some of the background shots for "The Note"

This quite a fun, yet complicated foray into the field of scenes and forced perspective.

There are 6 different sources of light for the build (3 main lights, 2 booklights for the window in the kitchen, one for the window in the hall, one for the picture).

There are also multiple instances of forced perspective (which is supposed to be as subtle as possible), the back yard, the hallway, the back room, and the photograph on the wall.



The orange construction paper was used to help colorify the back room's lighting.



Multiple book lights (easy to buy, quick to break D:) were used to help light windows and the painting.



The bar area. Inspired by a house that I have house sat for, it is complete with bar stools and under counter wine storage.



The sliding glass door went through many iterations before I went with the final product. I was quite amazed at how well it looked even though there is no actual "glass." This is also a good example of some of the details that may have gotten lost in the broad shot, such as the back yard, the light switch behind the curtain, or the rubber bands that "hold" the curtains together.



The chairs were the first pieces of furniture I built. I remember because I was watching the movie "Her" while I was doing it, and the movie had a lot to do with themes in this image (Depression, loneliness, false happiness, etc)



The table was a fun one to build, and I was quite pleased with how it turned out.



The TV section was also a fun area to design, from using the Friends stickers for art, or the neck bracket as a bookend (Hey, does this count for two categories then?).



Just some small builds to help fill the space. The book on the small drawers was also the original one that I was going to use on the table.



The Kitchen was an area I thought about cutting entirely, but I ended up falling in love with the design and I think it added a great deal of depth to the whole presentation. Also, who doesn't love doing dishes?



For me, this contest provided an outlet for an idea that I have had for a long time, but never got around to producing. There are a few different Forced Perspective techiniques that I had been looking forward to trying (the landscape picture, 2 point hallway, backyard) and I am incredibly happy to have had this opportunity.

Extremely well done! So many fantastic details! Thanks a ton for the extra pictures that show the extra details that we might have overlooked otherwise - astounding!

This is an amazing build and for mine, the pick of the whole comp. Technically it's top notch, the formal considerations of composition etc are thoughtfully addressed, and despite being understated, it still manages to have a powerful emotional effect. As someone who still struggles with depression from time to time, i found this piece very moving. Bravo!

gorgeous home with a nice view of the lush back yard. Great lighting too; that goes without saying though with your scenes. Good luck in the competition.

Amazing job. I love all of the super details, and the shot showing your lighting set up is great. As someone who wants to improve their pics and lighting this is very helpful.

If you look at the first photo in passing, it looks as if someone had placed a pure image of his apartment. really awesome

That is some superior work there Brian! The subtlety is matched only by all the detail. The wall art is stunningly clever. Love the backroom details the most. Fantastic Job!

Wow - nicely done! The pool and patio seen through the sliding doors is just terrific. But what I love the most is the contrast between the dark content in the background against the environment of the beautiful home. Great work!

superb interior and fp!

This is pure genius! Incredible touch with the forced perspective, but you also have brilliant attention to detail here. I like the drain board for the dishes, and the forced perspective art is the cherry on top!
