I've NEVER seen that shot of Carrie Fisher in costume on the set, or even heard anything about that. In fact, even half the model shots are new to me, and I've been all about BR from the beginning, having inhaled the CINEFEX and later the FUTURE NOIR book, and getting into laserdisc mainly just to have BR and 2001 at decent rez and in OAR.

 

One of the building models used in BR and GHOSTBUSTERS is at the awesome video store MovieMadness in Portland now. They have lots of great stuff on display, including a Foo Dog from CITIZEN KANE, Quinlan's sport coat from TOUCH OF EVIL and guns from THE WILD BUNCH.

 

Geez, this website is run from maybe 2 miles away from me! Up until recently I must have been within walking distance of the office, can't believe I don't know this guy.

It's actually on the guy's blog or twitter account or something, not that actual page. Here you go:

EDIT ADDON: she has apparently denied that it is her, now that I look at it on other sites. Sorry.

Great stuff, the way movies should be made, through the use of skilled craftsmen using their hands rather then computers.

I adore Bladerunner,  and everything about the way it was made.  Thanks Robin.
