Blade Runner 2049 - Las Vegas Exploration

Visually, Las Vegas needed to be a bold departure from the cold, dark city of Los Angeles. Iconic, real-world buildings from 1980s Las Vegas were placed between towering new megastructures in order to ground the audience in the new location. Referencing Australian dust storms, saturated oranges and reds provide a strongly oppositional colour palette to the dark blues and neon lights of LA.
