I take a look at the rejected cut for the Los Angeles 2019 scene in White Dragon Cut 5.
This cut was created six years ago and is composited buildings, neon signs, and other elements on the unused scenes of Los Angeles 2019 that were included as bonus footage on “Blade Runner Final Cut” DVD. The Los Angeles 2019 scene in White Dragon Cut 4 was created as same way, however this one has more element composited than the one in WDC4.
Initially, I planned to use this cut for the Los Angeles 2019 scene in White Dragon Cut, then I came across the “Blender”, that is the open-source 3DCG software, which changed the direction to create the CG Los Angeles 2019 scene.
When I look at this cut again, it looks inferior to the CG’s one, however it is not bad.
When I look through the original unused cut, the cut for WDC4, the rejected cut for WDC5 and the final cut for WDC5, I am filled with deep emotion.
Here’s the Los Angeles 2019 scene with the rejected cut.
