STAR WARS : EPISODE V - CLOUD CITY • CELEBRATION ANAHEIM DIORAMA WORKSHOP
PRE PRODUCTION: DESIGNING CLOUD CITY

AS SEEN AT STAR WARS CELEBRATION VII : BESPIN DIORAMA WORKSHOP
ANAHEIM - APRIL 16-19 2015 

Here is the first sketch I did on how all the hallways would fit together like Lego bricks.

Hallways "A" and "B" styles in the front row. The "C" style hallways connect to those. These are the main copy paste hallways if you will. You can leave them simple walls or add a closet door.

The center rows are where the "Roundabout" hallways are placed as you can see through them from the front, rear AND sides. The main "C" hallways connect the "Roundabout's" together in the middle. With halls placed in the front, rear and sides for Celebration. At home the depth and number of sections will obviously vary and depend on your shelf display space.

Last but not least, the "A" and "B" rear hallways include walls with windows and, or staircases, that give the film effect. The fan made Skyscrapers that are placed on the far end tables, will be seen through these windows adding lots of depth. Again, for the home scene, you may have to put City Matte Paintings behind the windows due to limited space.

The idea behind the design is to build like a cake. The bottom layer - Floor 1 - would be the core walls, torture chambers and Ugnaught boilers.

Floor 2 would be everything that is painted RED. Including the Torture chambers.

Floor 3 would be all the main white hallways, roundabouts and window halls.

The core hall would be resting on the tables obviously, and the hole going to the catwalk would coincide with the height of those tables. Since the "box" of the core itself starts at the floor, with 2 tables removed, you will get the effect that the halls go through the weather vane and out to the catwalk. Just like the movie scene when looking from the side view.

One of the hallways I was most excited about was the corner round hallways, which would be divided in 4 to allow the most fans to participate in this build. This is the room with the Stained Glass walls and I had found transparent paper etc... In the end, I didn't have time to design this before getting on the plane, and it's just too complex to do in the time we had on Set Up.

Don't worry though, I will finish the design and give you EVERYTHING you will need to make this diorama section, blueprints, decals and all. Will be in the Workshop menu when I get the time to make it.

Here is a bird's eye view of the final layout... in the bottom corners were the round hallways, above that on the left, Carbon Chamber and on the opposite end, Vader's Father Reactor Core catwalk. And above it all... Skyscrapers of all sizes and heights.

My first prototype built, you can't get more simple then this, perfect for the padawan or older beginners who never really built a diorama yet. 

This Hallway "A" Front (notice it has no walls in the front to block the sideways view when placed on a shelf) has a floor base and 2x 4" wall panels. The details that you can put on these are either FULL "3D" wall textures, or, 2X frame borders.

The second main prototype built, is another simple enough hallway, perfect for the padawan or older beginners who never really built a diorama yet. Plus if you want to go more detailed, you have the option to ADD a door frame on either or both sides of the walls. See the photo with Lando to understand what I am talking about.

This Hallway "C" has a floor base, ceiling (not pictured) and 6x 4" wall panels. The details that you can put on these are either FULL "3D" wall textures, or, 2X frame borders or Doors. See the blueprints (coming soon) in the WORKSHOP menu for more details on these options.

The next prototype built, is another simple enough hallway, perfect for the padawan or older beginners who never really built a diorama yet. Plus if you want to go more detailed, you have the option to ADD floor tiles and ceiling lights. Some of these roundabouts in the film have center sculpture. You can copy the film versions or use your imagination to do so.

This "Roundabout" Hallway has a floor base, ceiling (not pictured) and 4x 4" wall panels. The details that you can put on these are either FULL "3D" wall textures, or, 2X frame borders. See the blueprints (coming soon) in the WORKSHOP menu for more details on these options.

One of the next prototypes built, is another Medium level hallway, since you have extra walls, windows and stair possibilities (see other photo) it's good for the builders who want to spend a little more time at the workshop. Plus if you want to go more detailed, you have the option to ADD floor tiles and ceiling lights. For the convention the windows will reveal the actual skyscrapers built in the BG. For home use, because of space limitations, City landscape prints maybe more usefull.

This "A" style Rear Hallway has a floor base, ceiling (not pictured) and various 4" wall panels. You decide just what shape you want the corners to be. This is just an example of what you can do. The details that you can put on these are either FULL "3D" wall textures, or, 2X frame borders. See the blueprints (coming soon) in the WORKSHOP menu for more details on these options.

Here is the same "A" style Rear prototype built, but with added window and staircase options. This adds a little challenge for the builders. You can put only the windows, or a square window, or stairs with no window. Use your imagination or film reference photos if yu want to be movie accurate.

This "A " Style Rear Hallway has a floor base, ceiling (not pictured) and various 4" wall panels depending if you want to copy my idea or do one of your own. The details that you can put on these are either FULL "3D" wall textures, or, 2X frame borders. See the blueprints (coming soon) in the WORKSHOP menu for more details on these options.

The next Rear prototype built, is another simple enough hallway, perfect for the padawan or older beginners who never really built a diorama yet. or it can be little more chalenging if you decide to cut out some bay windows. You can if you want to go more detailed, have the option to ADD floor tiles.

This "B" Style Rear Hallway has a floor base, ceiling (not pictured) and 1x16 " wall panel. The details that you can put on these are either FULL "3D" wall textures, or, 2X frame borders, or cut out windows. See the blueprints (coming soon) in the WORKSHOP menu for more details on these options.
