Interview with Doc1

TF: What got you interested in steampunk?

Doc1: Yes well back in 1999 there was a movie called Wild Wild West Starring Will Smith and Kevin Kline. In that movie I saw all these cool old time looking gadget looking machines. I really didn't know what it was called just, thought it was so interesting and cool. Then I realized that the machines i have seen were like the ones I saw in the movie Twenty Thousand Leagues Under the Sea by Jules Verne. They had a Sub called the Nautilus. So while we were trying to come up with a compitition build in yellow someone said Steampunk. Once I looked up what steampunk was. i realy became interested in the art and became a big fan of the science fiction sub-genre.

TF: What are you planning to build next with this theme?

Doc1: I am building a steampunk steam train factory and yard and other things. I've come up with my own design using objects from Yellow.

TF: What advice would you give to a new builder interested in doing something with steampunk as a format?

Doc1: Go to the net. Google "steampunk". There are many interesting pictures and stories about steampunk. Bring you ideas back to Yellow and experiment with some of the pictures you have seen.

TF: Anything you would like to add?

Doc1: Steampunk is usually Victorian era with misplaced science technology, mostly steam power for its time. It's an art. Try it, you will like it. Just gives you a new look on what you can build in Yellow.

TF: Thanks for your time, Doc. We look forward to seeing what you come up with.
