Blade Runner Revisited

An experimental film in tribute to Ridley Scott's legendary film “Blade Runner” (1982) by François Vautier.

This film was made as a unique picture with a resolution of 60.000 x 60.000 pixels (3.6 gigapixels) It was made with 167,819 frames from 'Blade Runner'.

Vautier says to make the filme he, extracted the 167,819 frames from 'Blade Runner' then assembled all these images to obtain one gigantic square of approximately 60,000 pixels on a side or 3.5 gigapixels. The he placed a virtual camera above this big picture. So what you see is like an illusion, because contrary to appearances there is only one image. It is in fact the relative movement of the virtual camera flying over this massive image which creates the illusion of animation.
