DE­SIGN­ING THE FU­TURE

SFX - - Blade runner syd mead -

I was the first hired mem­ber of staff on Blade Run­ner. Ridley Scott and I had a great re­la­tion­ship. I was hired to de­sign the ve­hi­cles and, be­cause I’m an artist, I started paint­ing my de­signs in situ. I read the script, and dur­ing that first read­ing, Ridley said, “This is not go­ing to be Lo­gan’s Run,” that sort of re­frig­er­a­tor white [look]. I knew the story and the dystopian na­ture of the city set­ting, so I painted the scenery be­hind the ve­hi­cles and put them in place. He ap­pre­ci­ated that and, es­sen­tially, I painted my way into the rest of the pic­ture: props, in­te­rior views and ex­te­rior views.
