Weta Workshop was honoured to contribute practical miniatures, selected cinematography, and concept design work to Blade Runner 2049, directed by Denis Villeneuve.

This was a passion project for the crew, who are huge fans of Ridley Scott’s iconic 1982 original.

Here in Wellington, NZ, they hand-made enormous miniature sets which were then filmed by legendary cinematographer Alex Funke. In the Design Studio, the team of conceptual designers helped give shape to the director’s vision.

Check out their work and then see the film – it’s out now.
