It Took More Than 12,000 Paintings To Make Blade Runner This Beautiful

Swedish artist Anders Ramsell created 12,597 watercolour paintings to craft a 35-minute long "paraphrasing" of Ridley Scott's 1982 cult-classic science fiction film Blade Runner. It's like watching the movie in a dream.

First featured on Kotaku last year in the form of a 12 minute teaser, Ramsell's Blade Runner - The Aquarelle Edition captures the spirit of Scott's work in a hypnagogic living portrait. He's painted and animated a hazy memory of the movie.

I own the deluxe HD-DVD (that's right) edition of Blade Runner, which contains five different versions of the film. Perhaps the next time a special edition is compiled a sixth can be added.
