Adam Savage on Blade Runner 2049’s Massive Water Set!

Adam gets to be an honorary stunt performer on the set of Blade Runner 2049 as he visits the massive water tank used for production. Chatting with Special Effects Supervisor Gerd Nefzer, Adam learns how this tank is used to simulate turbulent waves by dropping literally tons of water into the pool.

  1. That was cool. And the fact that it was (nearly) all practical really shows up in the finished film. When I was watching it i said to myself “did they really subject Harrison Ford to that much water?”. The answer is apparently yes.

  2. I love this behind the scenes movie content. I am just curious what the point is for the movie production to allow this access, these are released after the film is out of theaters so it’s not really promotional, maybe disc extra material?…just curious about the behind the scenes behind the scenes. Again love the content, just curious.

  3. Hivemind, help me out here. That stylish scarf Adam wears in the beginning of the video, where can I buy one? 🙂

  4. A movie like this has a much longer life than its theatre run, they could be aiming for promo for digital/streaming/bluray 🙂
