“#RidleyScott on #Spinner inspiration: "I knew what it would be like to ride in a spinner. In the years when I was doing a lot of TV commercials, once a month I’d fly into New York. I’d get off the plane at JFK and take a helicopter, which cost $20, to the top of the Pan American building. Winter or summer, high wind or balmy evening — it was hairy. I did that for almost two years. Then, one stormy winter evening, a chopper nearly missed the top of the building because of the wind gusts. It perched perilously on the edge, and they nearly lost it. And that was the end of that. There were no more helicopters; they just closed them down. But I always remembered that.” via 2007 @Wired interview. ——— #BladeRunner #scifi #manhattan #nyc #taxi #timesquare" — by bladerunnerreality on Instagram.
