Blade Runner Tokyo Time-Lapse

Inspiration can essentially come from anywhere and everywhere. For French photographer and video artist Samuel Cockedy, his came from the 1982 science fiction movie Blade Runner. Based in Tokyo, Cockedy created the time-lapse video of the city to the score of the movie.

"A tribute to Ridley Scott and Vangelis, whose atmospheric work on Blade Runner has been a huge source of inspiration in my shooting time-lapses, as well as for entire generations of filmmakers," he says. "I hope this will make many of you want to revisit (or discover if you haven’t yet) this genre-defining movie."

Taking about over a year to film, the video is set to "Main Titles" and "Blush Response." Cockedey says that the score still sends chills down his spine and, to this day, remains his favorite soundtrack.
