Video of the Day: Blade Runner Revisited


François Vautier has created an animated short using all 167,819 frames of Ridley Scott’s classic Blade Runner. “I assembled all these images to obtain one gigantic image of colossal dimensions: a square of approximately 60,000 pixels on one side alone, 3.5 gigapixels (3500 million pixels),” he explains. Vaultier then panned a virtual camera above this giant image, creating the illusion of animation. Set to a mix of the film’s galactic synth music and dialogue, the experimental short becomes all the more fitting when the camera seems to follow Deckard’s zoom instructions.
