    • As Adam was explaining the way they shot the miniature sets, I started to wonder, if he is aware of the indie shortfilm "Slice of Life"? It's one of my favourite short movies I ever seen!

  • I'm some what embarrassed as a nerd to not have seen Blade Runner until recently. For what ever reason it never entered my radar. Great movie which holds up every bit today as it did when it was new. I'm just about to watch the sequel, 2049. Fingers crossed I will enjoy it.

  • You should watch a bladerunner fan film here on FIworld called Slice of Life! It was made the same way they did the original in the 80's. Models and minitures, cityscape shot in passes, matte paintings ect. No CGI. It is fantastic.

    Isaiah PadillaIsaiah Padilla11 päivää sitten
  • I’m going to have to disagree ever so slightly... the best way is not to expose a single piece of film; but to capture it on a digital camera and composite it digitally. That allows you to tweak the image compositing settings for each layer; and you can get true 100% transparency and opacity. Film, by its nature, can’t ever reach 100%. If you look at the original theatrical release of Star Wars 4 and 5; you can see the borders of the film segments for the starfighters in the composite shots... this is something that just doesn’t happen with digital composites. As much as I like the new physically based renderers; there’s still a certain quality about a well built model that the CGI just doesn’t match yet. However, digital compositing has long since eclipsed the film-based compositing stands of old...

  • Bladerunner 2049 was a masterpiece. As a HUGE Bladerunner fan, I came to the realization that 2049 is a better movie. The rooftop rain scene in the original is insurmountable, but the movie as a whole is second to the sequel. How crazy that I said that.

  • About the in-camera process using motion control and multiple exposures on the film, unless I'm missing something the process Adam described is incorrect. If you were to photograph Subject A, rewind the film and then expose Subject B, you'd see through B to A - it would be a standard multiple exposure. The way this typically works, at least the cases I know of and when overlapping exposures would be a problem, is that Subject A is photographed on a roll of film. Subject B, with the exact same moves programmed into the motion control rig, is exposed on a different roll of film. There would need to be a different roll of film for each pass. Once in the lab, "traveling mattes" are created on another roll of film, one roll for each element except for the very background, so that when the elements are composited the matte for Subject B is blocking its area across Subject A. To simplify, using the spinner example, and only two elements... 1. The motion control camera and rig photograph the skyline of Los Angeles. (Motion control isn't necessary if the view of the skyline isn't moving.) 2. The motion control camera and rig photograph the spinner model against a very black backdrop. The model itself may even be mounted on its own motion control rig. 3. Once the film is processed, the lab makes a high contrast negative print of the spinner model. The model in this print would be pure black and the background would be transparent. This piece of film is called a matte, and because it's got motion it's called a traveling matte. 4. The film of the background is sandwiched with the traveling matte and printed onto another roll of film. The traveling matte keeps that part of the background film from being printed on this new piece of film. The result is film of the background with pure black (unexposed) shape of the spinner moving across it. 5. This new piece of film is rewound. When it's run through the printer a second time, the film of the actual spinner is printed onto it, right where the black unexposed space is waiting for it. That's the basic principle. Other passes would print things like flare or smoke, and because those things are semi-transparent in the real world there would be no need for traveling mattes. I should point out that there are other methods to accomplish some of this. If you want to get a good education in the complexities, read "The Making of Kubrick's 2001," edited by Jerome Agel. It was published in 1970 so only used copies are available.

  • 'I'd like to visit this world for a while'. This is why I enjoy both of the Blade Runner films, and Sicario - Ridley Scott and Denis Villeneuve are masters of immersion. I didn't enjoy the small font at the start of 2049 though - I couldn't read the bloody exposition! 😆

  • BR2049 is the only movie I've watched twice in the movie theater. It's that good. Having said that, upon rewatching it, it could use some minor recutting. The flashbacks are way too on the nose and it could use some pacing changes towards the end.

  • Hey Adam, you forgot to mention Roger Deakins (he also shot Sacario). His cinematography is one of the reasons why 2049 looks so awesome, Deni & Rogers collaboration is such an awesome recipe. I know a film is whole team effort but Rogers lighting and cinematic approach is first class.

  • first time I saw 2049 I had chosen a local cinema with excellent sound and image and invited my uncle who also loves movies and his wife and daughter. He insisted on easier parking so we went to Cinemaxx instead. This was when the movie had been showing for some time so we saw it on their smallest screen with the worst sound. Worst cinema experience in my life. and with such and awesome movie that deserves the best! I'm still a bit mad at my uncle for this. btw my uncles wife and daughter left the movie half way cuz it was "boring" lol

  • Warm my heart to hear such nice words about "our local director" Denis Villeneuve. The internet crowd is blurring everything in negative comments and I feel he deserve better box office results. In this $$ driven world that can hurt in the long run. I quite low expectations for Dune until I heard he was directing it. Now it's the same scary feeling as pre 2049 release. He' surely more courageous than I am to take on these iconic titles. Arrival is my favorite sci-fi movie.

  • Hmm... I've NEVER watched Blade Runner. I guess I need to locate it and give it a watch. Funny thing. I don't really watch a lot of movies without paying attention to how it was made. I've always been a fan of FX and VFX and the BTS process of movie making. And as a semi-pro photographer, I see and notice things in scenes differently than an untrained eye might see them. To be honest, I've probably watched more FIworld BTS videos of how movies were made than I have watched the actual movies after they've been released. I think deep down inside I've always wanted to be a movie FX creator. I just never knew how to get there.

    • UPDATE: I heard back from the designer and he confirmed to me that the instructions being used are in fact his. I don't know if Adam mentioned that or not on his paid channel version of the video, but there's been no mention of it on the various video's I've seen that show the MOC under construction. And, the designer told me he was completely unaware of anything. Hopefully the designer has gotten (or will be getting) a shout out at some point.

      Greg YbarraGreg Ybarra7 päivää sitten
    • @Gordon Wrigley Great catch. I never noticed that until I watched it again. Upon my re-review, I was able to get a fairly decent screen grab of the first page and rotated it. I couldn't make out the complete title, but it reads in part: "Park Explorer V2," along with a clearly visible picture of a LEGO style Jurassic Park Explorer MOC. Through a little sleuthing, I was able to find a LEGO Ideas submission back in 2015, that's a dead ringer for the MOC in the video. That submission never reached full support. I then found a designer going by MKIBS BRICKS that is selling PDF instructions on both Rebrickable and eBay that appear to be the same MOC. Interestingly enough, I also discovered that LEPIN is selling a set that is identical (which they attribute to the designer). Let's hope that he authorized it and is getting a cut. I've emailed the designer to see if he can shed any light on the subject and confirm that the MOC is his. I'm just waiting to hear back from him. If/when I hear back from him, I'll post an update.

      Gordon WrigleyGordon Wrigley11 päivää sitten
    • @Gordon Wrigley Yes, color scheme does seem to lend itself to being appropriate to a LEGO version of the Ford Explorer from Jurassic Park. However, correct me if I'm wrong, but there doesn't appear to be any official set. It also looks larger (perhaps Minifig scale) and a little different from the various MOC's I've seen online. If you look a little closer at the video you will notice that the mudguards and the wheel rims are lime green. Pretty much all of the MOC's I've seen are City scale and have yellow rims and mudguards. If in fact it's someone's custom MOC, my curiosity is definitely peaked. Certainly, "inquiring minds want to know." Let's hope that Adam can weigh in and provide the clarity we seek.

  • For me the original Blade Runner has the best effects, atmosphere, and music. It is, as the kids say, a whole mood. While 2049 is a visual feast in its own right, I feel it has the better overall story. The original Blade Runner has a very simplistic story (to its benefit), and 2049 beautifully takes that story and then creates what I consider to be the better detective story of the two.

  • I was in high school when Blade Runner was released... I was amazed, captivated by it. I remember being absorbed by it, the theater and the world around me disappeared, I was just in the story. The visuals, the sound track... as a young scifi lover I had never experienced anything like it. (The Directors cut and then the Final cut were better still- it's sad that it all didn't start with the directors cut.) Years later when DVDs came to market, when I bought my first player (to me it was a big deal, it also meant building out an appropriate sound system) I felt that the first movie I bought was important, a statement of sorts. For me Blade Runner was the obvious choice, It had to be the first thing I watched on my new system. The opening sequence on a big screen with a good sound system is breath taking. Over the years as I've upgraded (a series of projectors, better audio, finally a giant 4k flatscreen) the first thing I queue up is always BR. I don't really understand why some people were disappointed by 2049- to me it was the continuation of the story, and it just looked and felt right. It wasn't deficient in any way. It didn't stand out like BR did in '82 though.... it really changed things.

  • The matte painter for Blade Runner was Matthew Yuricich. He had the, frankly superhuman, ability to accurately paint in inverted (negative) colours straight from the top of his head. This saved the VFX team an entire step of process. So _compose, expose, develop_ as opposed to _compose, expose, develop, expose, develop_ Reducing detail lost through this analogue process Absolutely astonishing skill

  • my first thought is Spike Jonze and his film Where The Wild Things Are. Spike wanted to have the Wild Things all be 100% practical puppetry. he honestly thought that film would die with the use of CG, but between time, budget, and quality he eventually gave in to certain aspects being CG. it really feels like Maurice Sendak's drawings come to life, even Sendak himself was proud of the film. i mean, you know you've achieved peak visual aesthetics where the ONLY complaints are about the emotional weight of the film being too mature for little kids who love the book, but no one has a lick of criticism for the visual aesthetics.

    • @David Evens Yeah, the addition of the weirding modules is my major issue with the 1984 version. It's still the first version of the universe I ever encountered as I watched it before I read the book, so it's my baseline when making any comparisons. I do think that despite its flaws the 1984 version did manage to convey the essence of Herbert's book. It certainly drew me in and encouraged me to learn more about the universe he created. Really excited to see what Villeneuve does with it.

    • @randomjunk1977 Well, he's not making the same basic mistake as Lynch did in trying to do it all as one film (which resulted in a 6-hour movie, which was cut down to 4 hours and didn't make a lot of sense and then 2 hours and made almost no sense at all). Now, if he can just stick to the source material and not go adding things... (Leaving things out is fine, and quite normal, as is combining characters. We expect that in adapting a book, especially a long, complex one like Dune. But we need to keep things close to the novel and not wander off into the weeds like adding weirding modules.)

  • 2 of my favorites are alien and last Starfighter for cutting edge realism and visuals for their time, although last Starfighter was pretty archaic by today's standards it was so cool to go see it at the movie theaters. another movie I remember being so cool for it day and age was Firefox with Clint Eastwood. Again or can't compared to nowadays, but I can still remember going to the theater with a 12 or 13-year-old buddy of mine and how amazed we were...

  • Enemy doesn't seem to be as popular and it's much more divisive than most of Villeneuve's work, but it's my favorite of his films, especially because of the performances by Jake Gyllenhaal.

  • People like Adam should speak against cancel culture... Fear of being canceled for opinions is wrong.. Genuius comes from different arguments, ideas... Fk Woke. #CANCELDISNEY! MANY HAVE, MANY MORE WILL. Kathleen Kennedy is A liar, a cancer to Lucas dream.

    • I can picture him with those pigtails on the side of his head of his hair was Lac and give him a long black coat black shoes white shirt and a top hat and he wood look like what I envisioned him as really.

  • The whole VFX scene behind Blade Runner is actually quite amazing. Like the amount of pure dedication, alone, for cultivating such visual effects just emphasizes how great the movie was.

  • 6:49 I respect that Adam knows when to use “and I” versus “me” He literally has knowledge about everything.

    • Adam is truly a generalist. I'm in a totally different field than Adam, but I similarly favor being a generalist over an expert.

    • @Saim S. I think is like in Portuguese. The I pronoun is used if you are the subject and me if you are the object. It is like the use of his, her. "I received a gift form my mother" "My mother gave me a gift" "He received a gift from her" "She gave him a gift" "I received a gift from her" "She gave me a gift" "Joy and I made this plan" "This plan was made by me and Joy"

    • @Ikmel A.A.A. A simpler way to think about it is 'grammatical equivalence'. "Adam and I love movies" is grammatically equivalent to saying "Adam loves movies and I love movies". No problem there. "They invited Adam and I to see the movie" is grammatically equivalent to saying "They invited Adam to see the movie and invited I to see the movie", which is nonsense. "They invited me and Adam to see the movie" is grammatically equivalent to saying "They invited me to see the movie and invited Adam to see the movie". Much better.

    • @Saim S. "You and I are best friends" I being a subject pronoun "My parents will give you and me a ride to school today" Me being an object pronoun

  • Neil B. wouldn't have made that movie if Blade Runner hadn't been filmed. I love when filmmakers stand on the shoulders of giants!!!

    • If you like miniatures and blade runner, check out the short film Slice of Life. Just a few guys made something awesome. Their FIworld channel has a lot of behind the scenes as well.

    • He made a guitar case for Eric Idle. Making a cigar box guitar/uke/mandolin seems like the next logical step. The time is ripe for a Mark Frauenfelder collab. Jack White could show them how a plank, a pickup, and an amp = guitar.
