Watch: ‘BLADE RUNNER’ 1982 Behind The Scenes Feature With Ridley Scott and Syd Mead

Oh, Blade Runner. Even as the years pass you still remain as brilliant and beautiful as the first time I consumed you. Here’s a convention reel that Ridley Scott and Syd Mead conjured up to promote the flick way back in 1982.

The Verge:

A behind-the-scenes feature, put together to hype the film at various science fiction and fantasy conventions, takes a look at the creation of the movie. A fresh-faced Scott is featured along with futurist Syd Mead and visual effects wizard Douglas Trumbull, all discussing the production and design of the movie’s universe; Mead explains how he began with clean, futuristic lines in his designs, and then added additional passes of machinery and detail to create a layered, realistic look at a world that had slowly devolved. Even the  magazine covers  created for the film’s background set dressing make an appearance. It’s a must-view for anyone that appreciates the seminal 1982 film – or is interested in the notion of Scott and screenwriter Hampton Fancher  teaming up for a possible sequel.
