Mr. Deakins,

First of all, I'm very excited for Blade Runner 2049!  I've seen the trailer and it looks great.

Being that Blade Runner 2049 is a sequel, and the original Blade Runner is very famous for its cinematography, to what extent did you study Jordan Cronenweth's work from the original film and what was the process?

I hope you can answer this question even if under a Non-Disclosure Agreement since it doesn't pertain to the plot of the film itself.

I will only say that Jordan's great cinematography on the original film was always there in my mind but it really didn't have an impact on what I was doing. That's because I simply can't light like Jordan. End of story!
