Ridley Scott – Bladerunner Storyboard

Ridley Scott - Bladerunner Storyboard

A section of Ridley Scott’s storyboard sketches for Bladerunner, demonstrating once again his flair for drawing and his passion for details. These dystopian scenes in particular – Deckards visit to the Tyrell Corp HQ – were inspired by Ridley’s youth and memories of the night-time vista of oil refineries and steel mills, the fabric of 60′s industrial Teeside (North East England).

EDIT – June 2012 ****

These storyboards were drawn by Tom Cranham at EEG (the effects house ) for the film Blade Runner. Mr. Scott supervised every shot but did not draw these sketches. Sherman Labby drew an earlier set of storyboards for this scene but more drawings were ordered. Tom Southwell production illustrator : Blade Runner 1980-81

  1. You should do a post about the Moebius, Long Tomorrow story that Scott ‘was inspired by’ when he made Blade Runner. I have high-res scans of it if you are interested.

  2. Whoops & Bollocks – that’s because I’m in the North West and have typed that on autopilot …. who’s says blogs are a relaible source of info….. thanks for pointing that out Paul – Fixed!
