We recently delved into the history and design of the iconic Spinner on our first-ever Tech Spotlight (see episode 26); now, with this exclusive interview, we're taking things even deeper. JM recently had the opportunity to chat with Peter Tindall—one of the artists responsible for bringing the Spinners of 2049 to life.
Few cinematic objects are as iconic—and as frequently copied—as the legendary spinner. In this episode (our first Tech Spotlight!), Dan and Patrick go in-depth on the beloved vehicle, delving into its astonishingly believable appearance in Blade Runner, its evolved design(s) in Blade Runner 2049, and beyond. And using Dan's background in air traffic control, they pick apart the actual flight sequence in Blade Runner in a level of detail you need to hear to believe.
