Watch: 'Blade Runner - The Aquarelle Edition' Is a Hypnotic Fan Tribute Like Nothing You've Ever Seen

Nov 19, 2013

The amount of time that goes into some fan art projects is a bit mind-boggling. Take for example Anders Ramsell's Blade Runner - The Aquarelle Edition. It's the entire film condensed to just under 35 minutes, but the paraphrased nature of it isn't the selling point here. This is an animated version of the film made up from nearly 13,000 cells that were hand painted using watercolors.

Yes, we know what you're thinking. "Why would I want to watch a 35-minute long version of Blade Runner with everything painted in blurry watercolors?" The answer is that you probably don't. But there really is something beautiful and strangely hypnotic about this entire process.

Blade Runner - The Aquarelle Edition is not going to offer you any hidden insights into Ridley Scott's film or anything, but even watching just a few minutes of it will make you appreciate just how memorable his film really is. Even when viewed through this dreamlike set of filters, it's still vivid and captivating.
