Champs Summer Flameoff 2010 Team Tournament
Team Captain Big-Z
First Off thank you to everyone who helped us along the way!!! Big ups to Abe from Northstar for the tube and rod!! Another shout out to Glasscraft and Blade for the clear!!! This project was built with the respect of artr and mechanics. Z brought up the idea of a comic style starship. With in a few hours of our first meeting we came up with a theme that would fit all of our styles and even bring some new techs to life. The display took 138 hours including planning and retrieving supplies. Art Mind Collective (Hillary, Big Frank, Cope, Apprentice Larry and Johan) threw in with help on working out the kinks in the display design and with driving multiple contestants gear across states including displays. Thanks to everyone, with out you all I'm lost.
The theme is a story line of a movie. The evil guys are the Zeta Reticuli and are hunting the Mirtar. We wanted to create a complete installation to bring our viewers into another world. We set up a black tent and hung chains to keep onlookers far enough back. Dancing lights and a nebula projection moved through the room while “The Collectors” soundtrack played in the background. We used a dimmer to show the work properly.
The stand was made of air dry clay and was painted by my apprentice Hillary. Johan said we should absolutely run some LEDs to match the landscape which we capped with transparent covers so it shimmered with changing light. Some smoking tubes and crystals and we have a planet surface.
Worm worked hard with Z to get down the approach on the bubs. The beast was a group effort and went smooth!!!!
Mad thanks goes out to my boy Ignite from Ignite Inc. who made the original drawings and made possible the t-shirts, and movie posters.
