Blade Runner Revisited [Video]

Blade Runner Revisited [Video]

French filmmaker's experimental film assembles frames from the classic sci-fi into one enormous image.

Emma Hutchings

François Vautier‘s tribute to Ridley Scott’s 1982 film Blade Runner was created by extracting 167,819 frames from the final cut and then assembling all of the images into one huge picture with a resolution of 3.6 gigapixels. The filmmaker, who also brought us the five-year time-lapse video Ants In My Scanner, put together this experimental film showing the view from a virtual camera as it passes over the picture. The relative movement of the camera creates an illusion of animation (a kind of zoetrope effect) because although there is only one image, it looks like there are many.
