That Blade Runner Feel

Fans of Ridley Scott's 1982 film Blade Runner will acknowledge that a major part of their attraction to the film is the futuristic, noir feel of the city where the story takes place.  The atmospheric blend of the rain, city lights, & people in the street has a way of emotionally affecting the viewer.

Here is a creative video I came across on Vimeo edited by Shian Storm which recreates that Blade Runner feeling.

Pretty amazing how Tokyo has developed into a city which is very similar to what is depicted in Blade Runner.

According to the Vimeo page I got this from, Shian did not shoot the original video but only altered the color and contrast.  The original video, shown below,  was created by Andrew Reid .
