“Blade Runner should’ve been set in London. Londoners practically live in the movie,” Richard Cosgrove muttered to himself - not for the first time.
"Soho and Piccadilly Circus’ streets are surreal places in the darkness of the night. The neon-lit roads are packed with every imaginable type of person," he went on in his mind. Then he smiled to himself, and said aloud, “I am standing in the middle of Blade Runner.”
His goal? To remake the science-fiction classic Blade Runner in under 60 seconds. And all to win the Done in Sixty Seconds film competition.
Done in Sixty Seconds is a short film competition with a deceptively simple premise: remake a hit Hollywood film in under a minute.
