“Making of Rachel” featurette

Blade Runner 2049” will surely remain in history at least for 2 reasons – it has incredible, mesmerizing visuals that have more to with real art than digital special effects. Secondly, it is a rare successful and thoughtful sequel of a cult film that really expands this fascinating and dark universe.


Still, digital effects in this film were as impressive as just everything else. In fact, only now I realized that Rachel was digitally modified… that never happened to me before! Even in some recent Star Wars installments with their stellar budgets it was pretty clear when somebody (like Peter Cushing…) was artificially re-created. But not here.


It lasts around 2 minutes. Consider switching the audio off – there’s some stupid annoying song that has nothing to do with the film.

  1. Haha, you weren’t kidding about the song 😂😂 Otherwise this was a great video. I did not realise it later myself either: but as Sean Young looked exactly the same as in the first film, I had expected some kind of digital wizardry. Did not know this though. Really terrific work, and it only goes to show how far technology has really progressed 😀

      • That’s true. Not in every scene.

        But now if I think of the Final Fantasy movie which I absolutely love…. the problem is actually not in CGI characters! But rather when everybody’s real and one of them just feels somehow different. That creates some dissonance, not the CGI itself.
