Lights!! Camera!! ACTION!!

#1
Let's face it, vehicle chase scenes, and memorable vehicles in general MAKE TV-shows/movies. Knight Rider?? KITT was a better actor than the Hoff... and do you think the Ghostbusters would've been as noticed if they were driving a Golf rather than that gorgeous Caddy hearse? NO.

So the SMC Higher-Ups have been curled up in our lightless cave for the past few weeks shouting random insults and throwing peanuts at each other to bring you all a totally basic, yet totally awesome themed Contest to finish up a very epic year for SMCars.net...

...so here it is...

-------------------------

...aaand ACTION!!

To recognise the most prestigious past and present vehicular chase-scenes in movies, we’re challenging the creative minds of our epic Community to the following: Replicate a famous vehicle used in a past/present film and/or television program.

This vehicle can be any type from and film or TV show; car, bus, motor-cycle, space-ship, ect, however, it must be a recognisable vehicle, so no “But this push-bike can be seen in the background for 5-frames of this student film” type thing, mkay? We’re talking famous rides such as the Batmobile, Doc’s DeLorean Time-Machine, the A-Team’s GMC Van and the Starship Enterprise, just to name a few… DeathStars are welcome, but we'd advise to go for something a lil' 'more' :p

--------------------

Contest Specifics:

- The modelling, texturing and rendering of one famous film/TV show vehicle.

- Model is to be created from scratch, with no use of existing elements of your old work or somebody else’s.

- Model poly/tri-counts can be anything; low-poly, mid-poly, high-poly, it doesn't matter. Technique should still be excercised depending on your choice, eg: poly-flow, topology, texture-sizes if your model could be for a game, ect.

- Model is to be shown in the LCA WIP section, with the heading "LCA Contest: *name of creation*", and kept up-to-date as much as possible.

- Completed models to be rendered into two main shots showing off the design at it's best angles. Studio renders would be fine, however creativity within renders is advised.

- No teaming up. This must be solely your own project.

-------------------------

…aaand CUT!!

The time by which you must have your creations finished and ready for judgement is the 31st of December. That's right, just under 2 months as of the opening of this thread. Prizes are as follows:

1st: Official SMC Gold Medal
2nd: Official SMC Silver Medal
3rd: Official SMC Bronze Medal

Get to it!!

Hm, real famous movie cars. To be true, I have no idea what car I could chose :( Maybe the roadmaster from departed, but I didnt want to model it for a contest and Id like to have it in a level of detail which I could never archive in a given time frame. Maybe the Caprice from Jumanji, but I guess I got the same problem there. And both cars are far away from being as famous as a batmobile or KITT.

I'm a bit surprise to pick a non-car vehicle, but here's my project : the famous Discovery spaceship from the very famous "2001 a space odissey" movie by Stanley Kubrick !



(no, I'm not going for the Lego version ;) )

EDIT : Just forget about me, due to a serious lack of time, I'm eventually not entering this contest.

guys what if the scene involves several cars is it obligatory to model all of them from scratch ?
because i want to create a scene from the taxi or taxi 2 movie when badguys chasing the 406
and i have the taxi almost finished (u can find it here on the forum)
so i'll model the badguys car but is it okay to have the second one almost ready ?

Oh!!! I have an idea. Do I have to state what I want to model?? I'm really gonna try to compete and complete this contest. Hopefully I can find enough images and resources for what I want to do. If I need to state (prior to a wip thread) what my model will be, let me know.

off to search for material.

Well as rules say everything must be made from scratch so unfortunately you cannot use your Peugeot :|

You don't need to say it here but you need to make wip thread where we can follow your progress ;)

Edit

Great to see so much interest in this contest :)
