Syd Mead talking about Blade Runner

Saw this over on James Gurney's blog , so I had to post it. Here is one the greatest designers of all time, talking about his work on the greatest sci-fi movie: Blade Runner. Just think that this guy is responsible, in one way or another, for what we see in all sci-fi movies nowadays.

Not only did Syd Mead do a great job on Blade Runner (and Aliens, and Tron :D), but he succeeded in developing a visual language that people expect to see in all the sci-fi productions that followed after it.

So have a look at this video, but most importantly listen carefully to what he says, as you may find some clues to his design process. Cheers!
