Samuel Cockedey filmed the Tokyo nightscape and mixed it with the hauntingly beautiful score to Blade Runner.
Hit the jump to check it out.
A tribute to Ridley Scott and Vangelis, whose atmospheric work on Blade Runner has been a huge source of inspiration in my shooting time lapses, as well as for entire generations of filmmakers. I hope this will make many of you want to revisit (or discover if you haven’t yet) this genre-defining movie.
Shot roughly over a year in Tokyo with a Canon 5dmk2, mainly in the Shinjuku area.
Music: “Main Titles” and “Blush Response” from Vangelis’ haunting score. It still sends chills down my spine every time I listen to it… my favorite soundtrack to this day. The new 3-cd remaster is well worth getting: itunes.apple.com/â€‹us/â€‹album/â€‹blade-runner-trilogy-music/â€‹id274024314
