Weta Workshop – Blade Runner 2049 Miniatures

Proud recipients of the Visual Effects Society Award for Outstanding Model in a Photoreal or Animated Project: LAPD Building. Congratulations to our artists Alex Funke, Joaquin Loyzaga, Chris Menges, Steven Saunders, and the Weta Workshop crew on Blade Runner 2049!

Weta Workshop was honoured to contribute practical miniatures, selected cinematography, and concept design work to Blade Runner 2049, directed by Denis Villeneuve.

This was a passion project for our crew, who are huge fans of Ridley Scott’s iconic 1982 original.

Here in Wellington, NZ, we hand-made enormous miniature sets which were then filmed by legendary cinematographer Alex Funke. In the Design Studio, our team of conceptual designers helped give shape to the director’s vision.

Check out our work and then see the film – it’s out now.
