Adam Savage Explores the Blade Runner 2049 "Farmhouse" Set!

  • Published on Nov 8, 2017
  • Adam walks us around one of the on-location sets built completely from scratch for Blade Runner 2049! This nematode farm belongs to the Sapper Morton character--played by Dave Bautista--and houses a striking scenic prop that those who've seen the film may recognize!

    makes me feel anxious that Adam was nerding out about 5 minutes from my house. The fact that the studio is right next to me makes me super anxious.

    I find it funny that Adam wasn't so far off with the joke about growing replicants in bags. I mean the only fresh replicant we see "exit production" in BR2049 does indeed slide out of a bag

    What always amazes me about 'futuristic' movie settings that are based in ageing, rotting infrastructure and industrial areas, is how little of it is recognisable industrial infrastructure. It always looks like someone piled a bunch of unrelated crap in a field and spraypainted it brown and added some moody lighting. Or poured slime over it, which is how they seemed to have done Dredd.
    Most of us have met real industrial equipment, or seen poverty. It's generally not slime-brown.

  • Norml B

    I liked the tree shot in the movie but the wire kinda ruined it

    • Norml B
      Norml B Year ago

      Yes, i agree with you, they are obviously there to support the dead tree, which is too precious to be left to the elements. It is simply that there is a shot at the beginning of the movie, in which one of these cables is up close in like most part of the frame, while the actual subject is further away. But the camera then pans away from the cable. Dont ask me which shot exactly. The thing is, it didnt help the aesthetics of that shot (at least to my understanding), and i wonder why they chose to do it this way.

    • Man Beadle
      Man Beadle Year ago

      Ok, but I'm not sure what you mean, is there a specific shot you just didn't like? A theme that runs though the original P. K Dick novel and the films is living, real things are coveted by replicants and humans alike. I presume that Sapper Morton installed those support wires to somehow memorialise the tree that's now dead or the fact that its a marker for the grave. K mentioned the tree is dead later to Mariette when she says she's never seen one before. The wires are meant to be there for a visually symbolic reason, it''s not like they were accidentally left in by the film makers. Something such as a tree, even a dead one, is now revered by people in that world I was thinking.
      Sorry if I'm misunderstanding you.

    • Norml B
      Norml B Year ago

      I know, but it was straight through the shot. Kind of weird..

    • Man Beadle
      Man Beadle Year ago

      The wire is there because it's dead, it's support to prevent it falling.

    Magots would be a pretty good thing to grow in an over populated earth because they take up less land per portion of food than livestock (although that doesn't seem to be an option anyway) and they are very high in protein.

    • 0623kaboom
      0623kaboom Year ago +1

      that and the seaweed they feed on provides oxygen and the maggots feed on the dead critters all around and fertilise the seaweed ... while also providing a high protein food substitute ... best when crisped in a pan with garlic and butter btw ...

      Cheap and very professional labor, many of the hollywood's blockbuster movies are made in Hungarian studios. Btw, you can even see buildings from Budapest in the movie, or at least one, the old casino is an actual building.

    To anyone who loved Blade Runner 2049... get those blu-ray/dvd pre-orders in!! Yes, one of the worst things you can possibly do as a consumer of video games, is actually advisable when it comes to great films. Support great cinema and send a clear message to Hollywood!
