Making it look like the original movie was not the intention. The director and Rodger Deakins wanted it to look like the city was almost underwater and that the environmental collapse had accelerated in the intervening years. The final look is a deliberate choice and motivated by the story and the fact that the world has degenerated in the meantime.Yeah its great that they used miniatures... shame the compositors did their darndest to make 'em look like CG.
Some of those BTS photos with the smoke atmosphere come close to the original Blade Runner feel, unfortunately that's all been lost in the shots as they appear in the movie.
I did the same thing, was a subscriber for years and then when all the photos of miniatures and animatronics changed into people staring at monitors and the words "propriety software" got used over and over again I stopped, I couldn't learn anything from the magazine any more.I haven't bought a new Cinefex in ages. Kind of gave up on it when everything went cgi.
Looks like the base is MDF.Okay this is coming from a complete newb to model building, what exactly is the base of these models made out of? Wood or foam core? I cant tell from the photos. Also are any of these 3d printed? How is this kind of thing usually done?
