JANUARY ART CHALLENGE - BREWGINEERING
 
Well, with news and promotion for the new Trek film finally starting to amp up, I thought this month's challenge should revolve around it somehow. I am one of those many people who relatively enjoyed the new take on our beloved series but also share a common complaint...the use of a VERY recognizable brewery for the Engineering set. It took me right out of the movie in each of it's scenes.

So, my challenge to you is design what you'd consider to be a proper looking Engineering Section for the new JJprise. Keep in mind the aesthetics used in the 2009 film but design with a true Trek fan flair. Your submission could be a simple pencil sketch, blueprint, or just a certain camera view. Would you use parts of the brewery set? Would you return to the days of a single warp core? A gritty, mechanical look? Or maybe a highly polished one? I'd love to see what the fans here would do if they had been the set designer in 2009. Good luck and have fun.

If Vecktor submits an entry, we might as well just give him the "prize" by default, because his work will blow everything else outa' th' sky. ;)

My problem is if I want to enter I gotta look up images from a movie I've made it my life's mission to avoid.

(sigh) It's never easy...

Not really. Just look at a snapshot of your bog standard mega-corp brewery and say to yourself, "avoid this." ;)

Not that simple. That would just leave me making up an engine room from scratch, and my idea of an engine room in Trek is "Matt Jefferies didn't think one was necessary, and I always ask 'What Would Matt Jefferies Do?'"

In order to tie it to the design in the movie I have to see things like the design of the bridge, and if I want to put people in the image I need to see the design of the uniforms.

Although it should seem to fit into the current JJprise, I strongly encourage you and others just to put your own spin on it. Personally, I'm interested in seeing the various artists' takes on a design. My submission (and others I've seen so far) try to encapsulate various components and styles from TOS to the *cough* alternate timeline. :-)

the only question i have about this month's challenge is: Does it need to look affordable?

I mean, you can design a lot of engine rooms that would blow the production budget to build. So is that intended to be a constraint, given you said "the set designer in 2009?"

Money is no object. ;-)
