I love when I watch a movie and very soon after a MOC appears in my Flickr feed, it’s like fate or something. I literally watched this movie (well, mostly listened to) two days ago while at the studio. I was also fortunate enough to work at Digital Domain, and a lot of the models made for this feature were still on display during my time there (yes, technically I was paid to spend a few minutes every week of so ogling at a gorgeous model). I adore this version of Korben Dallas’ taxi by builder Davdup, it makes me want to watch the movie all over again.
There are many things to love about The Fifth Element. There's the quirky humor, the stunning visuals and of course Leeloo. But one of my favorite things about the film are the vehicles, especially Dallas' cab. This version by Mad Physicist captures it's futuristic yet utilitarian aesthetic perfectly. I love the mix of old and new grays as well as the sticker use to really get a good aged look.
