Adam Savage, The Blade Runner Prop Master


Most of you probably know Adam Savage for his work on the show Myth Busters. But did you know that he actually has his own YouTube channel called Tested? Well for those of you who don’t know, Tested is a channel that focuses on everything from the latest gadgets, prop replicas, different methods of manufacturing prop replicas, and showing off other peoples prop replicas. Oh and also making Eric Idle a new guitar case. Clearly Adam loves props and is just incredibly knowledgeable about the ins and outs of prop making. He is also a huge movie nerd, and one movie in particular (some movie called Blade Runner) has kept him busy trying to replicate one the best prop of all time, the Blade Runner blaster. Starting in 2012 he has made over a dozen videos talking about the blaster and also the making of Blade Runner 2049. He got the chance to see the 2049 version of the blasters in person, he was invited to appear as an extra in the short “2048: Nowhere To Run,” and he got a tour of the sets. I bring this up because I made a playlist so those of you who just found out about Tested can watch all the videos in order. I hope you all enjoy.
