Like many of you, I went to see the new Blade Runner recently and I absolutely loved it. This is the reason you go to see movies on the big screen. It was a feast for eyes, ears and mind. After that I’ve decided to watch the first Blade Runner from 1982 again. I always loved this movie. It made me love cyberpunk genre. After just seeing the new movie on the big screen, I was surprised how well the first film was made and how high the quality was. Some visuals and environments could stand up to the ones in the new film.
As we know, the CGI (computer-generated imagery) or any form of digital effects didn’t exist in those days. Blade Runner is a movie known for its visuals created with old-school techniques taken to the next level. All created in-camera. No computers used whatsoever! They made use of multiple film exposures, miniatures, matte paintings imposed onto the live action footage and props like cars, guns and environments like the Hades landscape were all physical sets and props, built by the art department.

I don’t know why I’ve come up with this idea for this YouTube short video. I needed some material to see what I can do with green screen and this idea popped into my head. And, you know, you don’t actually need actors because now there’s two of you. (and then a friend visits you and you sit him down in front of a green screen and tell him to say “wtf is this s**t” and to not ask any questions). Then it quickly escalated to jumping into Blender and destroying a giant space station with a meteor… god complex anyone? (the space station was a free 3d model from Kuhnindustries on Turbosquid.com btw). I’m thinking of recording a short tutorial on green screen recording and making space stations explode using Adobe After Effects and Blender. Meanwhile, here’s a pic of me without trousers 😀
