Blade Runner: Designing the Future Panel Discussion (US)

Posted by Craig Grobler on Google+ On Monday, April 05, 2010

Typically we focus on UK events but this one's a doozy and if any of our US readers get to go we're quite envious.

Bonhams & Butterfields’ prestigious Sunset Boulevard galleries in Los Angeles will play host to a panel discussion on April 15 centering around the cult classic film, Blade Runner.

Around 150 celebrities and industry power players are expected to attend the panel discussion, entitled “Blade Runner: Designing the Future.” The panel will dish on everything Blade Runner, from its environmental and social themes to the brilliant visual design that left audiences in 1982 reeling, and audiences today still just as appreciative of the classic science fiction film.

The Academy-award winning producer, Michael Deeley (The Italian Job, The Man Who Fell to Earth) will participate in the panel, along with legendary conceptual and industrial designer, Syd Mead (Star Trek, Aliens, 2010). Frances Anderton will moderate, and the Oscar-winning director of Blade Runner, Ridley Scott will attend, schedule permitting.

The event is to coincide with the opening of the auction preview for the 20th Century Decorative Arts sale, scheduled for April 20. Blade Runner fans will not want to miss out on this opportunity to pick up one-of-a-kind memorabilia from the iconic movie.

Featured auction highlights on preview include a signed promotional poster from the Blade Runner’s “Final Cut” release from the personal collection of Michael Deeley, a copy of a reissue of Philip K. Dick’s 1968 science fiction classic book on which Blade Runner is based, and a signed copy of Oblagon: Concepts of Syd Mead, 1985, which contains 17 pages of Mead’s art, created for Blade Runner from the designer’s personal library.
