WATCH: Rodeo FX Unveils VFX Breakdown for ‘Blade Runner 2049’

From digital signage and sci-fi cityscapes to a completely remade Las Vegas locale, Rodeo FX delivers 75 visual effects shots for the sequel to Ridley Scott’s classic 1982 feature film.

Visual effects house Rodeo FX has released a new reel showcasing its work for director Denis Villeneuve’s Blade Runner 2049.

Rodeo FX artists completed 75 visual effects shots on this sequel of Ridley Scott’s classic in their Montreal and Los Angeles studios. Art director and concept artist Deak Ferrand worked on the conceptualization with Villeneuve in Rodeo FX’s Los Angeles studio.

“The first Blade Runner, released in 1982, is a classic sci-fi film and I’m proud to have been involved myself as a VFX supervisor for Rodeo FX on this sequel, which will undoubtedly also leave its mark,” said Rodeo FX VFX supervisor Sébastien Moreau. “It is a privilege to once again work on a Denis Villeneuve movie and showcase Quebec’s talent on this major project.”

This is not a first collaboration for Rodeo FX and Villeneuve. The relationship began with the Quebec film Incendies, which was nominated for Best Foreign Language Film at the 2011 Oscars, and continued with Enemy (2013) and Arrival (2016).
