the Art and Making of Blade Runner 2019

Certain films(and album projects) just continue to give me life over and again.


I watched the documentary Dangerous Days the Making of Blade Runner, recently and did not realize the depth and wealth behind this film. Most say it is a visual thematic movie just as much a story, remaid from Do Androids Dream of Electric Sheep?

And the fan art, is wonderful. Compositions by Vangelis

The movie is almost prophetic in so many ways. And so many movies and shows have been inspired by Blade Runner like Ready Player One, Netflix Altered Carbon, Ex Machina and even Prince's 1999-Purple Rain eras. And inspired fashion-shows and artists of diverse medium.

The use of Egyptian, Myan, the Orient, 1950's Art Deco, religious symbolism and future noir.

Did he put your million dollar check

The owls name is Ajaxx, according to Paul M. Sammon author Future Noir Revised : The Making of Blade Runner

.

Rachael: Do you like our owl?
Deckard: It's artificial?
Rachael: Of course it is.
Deckard: Must be expensive.
Rachael: Very. I'm Rachael.
Deckard: Deckard.
Rachael: It seems you feel our work is not a benefit to the public.
Deckard: Replicants are like any other machine. They're either a benefit or a hazard. If they're a benefit, it's not my problem.
Rachael: May I ask you a personal question?
Deckard: Sure.
Rachael: Have you ever retired a human by mistake?
Deckard: No.
Rachael: But in your position that is a risk?

The neon lights and signs are a huge favorite, that contrasts the smokier rainer LA 2019 nights

"Many elements of the world of Blade Runner was an exaggerated version of the late 1970's. The Goodyear airship was roaming around the skies, a mix of punk rockers, hippies, new romantics could be seen on the streets. Hot topics of the time included ideas about ecological melt-down complete with acid rain, giant multi-national corporations taking over the world, population growth producing mega-cities etc. etc. The Blade Runner world was an extrapolation of a certain viewpoint of the late 1970's." -Andrew Barnett

This is one thing I prefer about set production from earlier times, vs graphic sets. Of course a mix is great. But see all the extremes of creating LA 2019 future noir was amazing.


Ridley Scott, would actually play music for the soundtrack from a high spot while scenes were being filmed

The miniatures look amazing. I much prefer miniatures to CGI. Granted they can do far more with CGI, but the miniature shots just "feel" more realistic.

I agree. Sometimes the puppets work better than CGI
