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!

61 // Remembering Rutger: A Conversation with Paul Sammon (A 700 Layer Cake Part 11)

August 20, 2019

With the sudden passing of the beloved Rutger Hauer, we decided it was important to commemorate his life and work, and of course the iconic characters he has portrayed in his acting career. Friend of the show and film historian Paul Sammon joins Dan, Patrick, and Jaime to reminisce on the life of the iconic actor. It's been a sad time for all of us fans, but we hope to spread some of Rutger's positive spirit with you and celebrate his life.

“Music is the most multi-dimensional knowledge we have. It's as specific as nature can be. Any form nature takes contains a specific sound combination. Music is a language. It's a memory of the cosmic system, a memory of past and future. Above all it's science not entertainment.”

Join Jaime, Patrick and Dan for an exploration of the man behind the sound of Blade Runner. From his days as a child, through his Academy Award Winning score for Chariots of Fire, the hosts of Shoulder of Orion leave no stone unturned.

59 // A Belly Full of Killing: Discussing the Theatrical Cut Part 2 (A 700 Layer Cake Part 9)

July 23, 2019

It was clear from our first deep-dive into the Theatrical Cut that one episode wasn't going to be enough to cover it. In Part 2, Jaime and Patrick are joined by frequent guest Peter and first-time guest Steve for an extended, wide-ranging investigation into Blade Runner as it first greeted the world at large in 1982.

This time around, the team spends a great deal of time looking at historical context—not just the history of the film, but the history of ourselves. Steve, a film/TV professional who fell in love with Do Androids Dream of Electric Sheep? in the sixties and saw Blade Runner in the theater, shares his unique perspective with us. We also take time exploring initial critical reactions to the film—and end up finding some kindred spirits in small-market newspapers nearly forty years ago.

The journey of Blade Runner is a crazy, quixotic, beautiful mess. We are so lucky to explore it with all of you.
