City of Silhouettes and Perspective


[via Gizmodo]

Back in the glory days of science fiction cinema, before every landscape was created in a computer, special effects geniuses used all kinds of awesome practical tricks to create entire worlds, including the one seen above – the Los Angeles of tomorrow as seen in the classic film Blade Runner. Gizmodo has a great article on how the small-scale city was built using row after row of cardboard silhouettes and thousands of feet of fibre optic cable. This might not be too interesting to the non-movie-nerds out there, but I think it’s totally fascinating, especially the video on how they did it! Check out the article here.
