Stage design of the Foolish Bricks Comic, chapter 2 – Dwaas’ house

April 17, 2021

I redesigned the interior of Dwaas’ house as a Lego MOC (My Own Creation) for season three of the Foolish Bricks Comic. In this article I will show you the build of Dwaas’ living room in chapter two.

The Lego MOCs for chapter two were pretty elaborate. I reckoned that most of the scenery would be used multiple times during the comic, so I build the sets in such a way that I could shoot them from all angles. That is why I built these sets as complete rooms. All walls were removable, so I had complete freedom of movement (see Figure 8 below).

An unpleasant side-effect of this was that building the sets was very time-consuming. I had trouble finding the time to build! Occasionally, scenes dragged a bit too long for this very reason; I needed to buy me some time.

This season I went for smaller MOCs again, with added details opposed to the tiny MOCs of the first season. I also hope to speed up my builds whilst improving my building techniques. The details included combined with improved lighting and understanding of storytelling principles can provide interesting panels without drastically having to change the angles each time. I already ordered a lot of sand green bricks for the rest of the necessary sets. 🙂

Below the season two set in all its details;
