Thanks for posting this Svanya :) I like the films piano theme running through the trailer. I'm almost tempted to fiddle with the controls on my T.V and watch it all in black & white ;)

[center][/center][center][img][/img] "Blade Runner - Sean Young" by [url=]David Seguin[/url] [img][/img] "Rachel Pin-up" (40s Style) by [url=]Alex Amezcua[/url][/center] [b]Excerpt[/b]: The attention to lighting in "Blade Runner" is significant throughout the film whether its cast over characters faces during conversation or lighting the overpopulated streets of the city. The aesthetic of the film resembles that of noir films which is by no means a mistake "[Director] Ridley Scott felt that the style of the photography in Citizen Kane most closely approached the look he wanted for Blade Runner. This included, among other things, high contrast, unusual camera angles, and the use of shafts of light." David Dryer one of the films special photographic supervisors worked with black and white prints during the production of the film, he felt that the film should have been released in black and white due to the depth the lighting created. Though the film was released in colour the idea that it could be potentially shown in black and white indicates that the look of the film parallels that of noir classics. [b]Source[/b]: [url=]georgebeattiecine blog[/url] Interesting fan-trailer, and I like the title-credits bit. I remember seeing one (on the web) very similar to this that the TCM (US network) did for BR, when featured in their 'Noir Classics' run, several years ago. And may have used the same music, too. I believe Terry Rawlings (Editor, BR), also stated that the film was cut looking through a B&W viewer (still quite common back then). Never much of a fan of B&W myself; although, I have developed an appreciation since for it (in the case of [url=]certain photographers[/url]). The first TV I had to watch was an old B&W; it took about 45 mins. to warm-up, and produce the picture. =P I was very happy to be upgraded to color, and instant picture (also the modern world); however, many years later. We may have kicked-out color + remote sets, like there was no tomorrow to America, but for many it was still quite unaffordable, then. Thanks Svanya. ^_^ S:)

Perfect. My next viewing of BladeRunner will be in B&W! Well, it has been called the Citizen Kane of Science Fiction ;-) Big thanks Svanya & Sawa! *hugs*

really BR is a futuristic film Noir style, I wonder if the new film would be shot in that infinite shades of gray that gives us the old classic films. Beautiful!
