The making of “Leon’s ceiling hanging”(1)

Blade Runner White Dragon Cut 5 including the newly created scenes is going to coming out November 2019.

In the movie, Deckard and Gaff investigate a room in a hotel where Leon is staying.
Leon has not returned to the hotel, and Deckard finds out many pictures and a piece of snake scale. It leads to the investigation of Zola.

By the way, there are some kind of scenes that have never filmed due to budget limitations.
Leon was hiding by pushing against the four corners of the bathroom with his hands and feet like a spider and looking Deckard down. However Deckard and Guff doesn’t notice Leon on the ceiling.

There is also storyboard.

<The storyboard of the scene which has never filmed> Leon is looking Deckard down.

I have made this rejected scene with Blade Runner White Dragon Cut 4. But it was not a good.
That inspired me to recreate this scene with White Dragon Cut 5.

In the storyboard, Leon is hiding on the recessed area of the ceiling. However, I think that Deckard and gaff easily find him.
I only think is that Leon was hiding on the ceiling above the bath tub. In this case, it would be hardly to be found him if the bath curtain would be closed.
But unfortunately, the bath curtain is not closed in the scene where Deckard finds a snake scale in the bathtub.

However ! I found the deleted scene where Gaff is openning the bath curtain. It means that the bath curtain was closed at first. So It is not strange if Leon is hiding on the ceiling above the bathtub.

  1. Immediately after entering the hotel, Deckard enters the bathroom. At the time, Deckard leaves the bathroom without finding Leon because the bath curtain is closed.
  2. Next, Gaff enters the bathroom and opens the bath curtain. However, Gaff leaves the bathroom without finding Leon because he doesn’t look up the ceiling.
  3. Again, Deckard enters the bathroom. However, he was distracted by the snake scale in the bath tub and left the bathroom without finding Leon.

I have created the bath room 3D model with Leon hiding on the ceiling above the bathtub.
