An Artist Recreated Blade Runner in 12,597 Water Colour Paintings

By Casey Chan on at

Holy wow this is impressive. Artist Anders Ramsell animated Blade Runner by painting 12,597 different water colour paintings and stringing them together into beautifully fluid sequences. It's incredible, you feel like you're watching Blade Runner, you get to hear Harrison Ford and follow the story but you're seeing it like never beforeā€”in moving art.

The individual frames might not look like much but when they start animating and moving, it's absolutely gorgeous to see. The whole film is 35 minutes and it's an orgy of colours and strokes. You can see more of Anders Ramsell's work here.
