Watch this amazing short created for fans at science fiction conventions in 1983, which shows the elaborate designs Ridley Scott and his crew created to illustrate Blade Runner's striking future dystopia.

From the Vimeo account which posted this footage:

One of the Blade Runner Convention Reels, featuring interviews with Ridley Scott, Syd Mead and Douglas Trumbull about making [the] Blade Runner universe. This 16 mm featurette, made by M. K. Productions in 1982, is specifically designed to circulate through the country's various horror, fantasy and science fiction conventions.

Gorgeous.
