Aliens inspired ship interior
Our heroes make their way through creepy corridors and dimly lit chambors to discover the downfall of this long-abandoned ghost ship.
About this creation










































Every one of these scenes was a seperate "set." just large enough to fill the camera frame. They were all built with the same group of parts, and used a surprisingly small amount of pieces. There is no ship, just smoke and mirrors. This was an experiment in lighting and a touch of Hollywood magic. The smoke is from incense sticks, the red light is from Exo-Force light bricks, the green is from a desklamp with a green glass shade, and for every photo I published, there were about 50 that didn't make it past post-editing. No matter the size of your collection, anyone could try this. Figure out what kind of shot you would like to take, and build just enough to fill it in. Some of these were no more than two walls and a floor. Others needed more walls and a ceiling, but they were all relatively small.

UPDATE:

Thanks everyone for the overwhelming response to this project! I must admit that it is nearly a year old, and I posted it here to round out some of my other recent diorama MOCs, never realizing how much of a hit it would be. I have alot more pictures of this series over on Brickshelf, so take a look if you're interested. Below is a photo of one of the sets without the cropping, lighting, and editing to give you a better idea of the scale of these builds.

I even started a comic based on these images, but lost steam and never finished the project. You've inspired me to pick up where I left off, and I'm building a new set as we speak!

I like the lighting. You inspired me to build a spaceship hall similar to this with a door on the end. I hope I can get it on MOC pages.

The outside is more of a hunk of junk than a spaceship, but the inside is probably the most complicated/detailed MOC I've ever seen.

Even though I've never seen Aliens, I've seen enough to know what this was supposed to be instantly. A truly artistic creation - especially the work with lighting/effects. Awesome job!

I've made several interior-only MOCs that I thought of as movie sets... but I never went so far as to add special effects! This is good stuff.

You seriously know how to do a well interior for a ship. This is jaw-dropping good. I like to dream of doing things like this, but I don't think I have enough parts. Was this a whole ship you made? or were these individual corriders? Everything about this was really cool. Awsome work.
