Ahoy, squirts! Quint here with today’s Behind the Scenes Pic!
Yeah, I went original release with the headline. I like what “Give me life, father” means for Batty as a character in Ridley Scott’s Blade Runner, but there’s something chilling about the original line.
Blade Runner has been requested by the loyal readers, so I went ahead and pulled out one of my favorite pieces. Apologies for the tardiness of the pic, but the first day of SXSW snuck up on me. However today’s pic is pretty great, so I don’t feel too bad about it.
The great, pioneering effects genius Douglas Trumbull posted the below shot on his website and I knew right away I wanted to feature it in the column.
Watching rear screen projection like this makes me instantly nostalgic for my childhood, just as I’m sure the shoddy rear-screen projection plates behind actors driving in black and white movies make our parents nostalgic for their childhoods.
This is a neat one and I think you’ll dig it!
Click the image to visit the man’s website… but don’t look around too much. I’m sure you’ll see a few more Trumbull images in the coming months! Enjoy!
Tomorrow’s… erm… today’s… Behind the Scenes Pic will be released on time, I swear!
