71 // Reality Ahead of Schedule - A tribute to Syd Mead

January 14, 2020

At the very end of 2019, we lost yet another Blade Runner great: visual futurist, designer, and artist Syd Mead. In this episode, Jaime, Patrick, and Dan pay tribute to the man who was integral to much of the concept design and visual feel of Blade Runner, Aliens, Tron, and Blade Runner 2049 among many other films. Our thoughts go out to the family and friends of Mr. Mead, and we offer this episode as a final thank you to a man who has taken us by the hand for most of our lives and turned our collective dreams of the future into a tangible reality that will live on forever.

65 // Photographing A Miracle: Interviewing Blade Runner 2049 VFX Coordinator Michael Legato

October 6, 2019

In this episode Shoulder of Orion commemorates the two year anniversary of the release of Blade Runner 2049. Founder and host Jaime Prater and special guest host Inge Kolstad sit down to interview Michael Legato a VFX coordinator on the film. At the heart of our discussion are the over two hundred images that Legato released on social media from his time on set. From stories about going out with Sean Young in drag, to a mysterious dream sequence with horses, Michael talks intimately about what it was like being in the trenches of Denis Villenueve's masterpiece Blade Runner 2049.

We hope you enjoy!

In part two of our tribute to Roy Batty, Jaime, Micah and Patrick conclude the emotionally fraught conversation from part one. Included in this episode are some of the words and voices of so many of you who took time out of your day to write in and leave us voice messages.
