This is strange and intriguing. Swedish artist Anders Ramsell has released an animated film in which he renders the first roughly twelve minutes of Blade Runner in 3,285 aquarelles. (An aquarelle -- I looked it up -- is a transparent watercolor drawing.) Which is such an extraordinary amount of work that I'm tempted to give him a pass on the whole copyright thing. This is not the same as downloading a dozen pirated episodes of Speed Racer and then cutting the race scenes to a pirated copy of Highway to the Danger Zone. This is a genuine, if quixotic, accomplishment.
Mind you, by any rational reading of the copyright laws, Ramsell is screwed. He's using the movie's soundtrack, its script, and its visual direction. Plus, he's not paying for the source material, Philip K. Dick's Do Androids Dream of Electric Sheep? All of which are worth serious money, as witness the amount of it that was spent making the movie.
Anders Ramsell plans to render the entire movie in this form, which would be a product valuable enough to make it worth the movie's owner suing the heck out of him
But what a weird and wonderful thing for him to do. Oh, brave new world that has such lawsuits in it.!
