Blade Runner: The Making And Damage-Controlling Of

"Decent people really didn't live below 40 stories above the street." -Syd Mead

Oh man, the groovy disco music that opens this 1982 13-minute, making-of convention reel for Blade Runner tells you all you need to know.

There are nice, matter-of-fact interviews with the movie's design principals, Scott, Mead and Trumbull, but the best thing is the lights-on footage from the set and the model shop.

Since 2001 here at greg.org, I've been blogging about the creative process—my own and those of people who interest me. That mostly involves filmmaking, art, writing, research, and the making thereof.

Many thanks to the Creative Capital | Warhol Foundation Arts Writers Program for supporting greg.org that time.
