"In order to get the backlight effect of the sun in Tyrell's office the whole upper part of the frame was a series of big studio lights. After we did the front projection of the actors moving in front of the window, the whole upper part of the frame was removed and replaced with a matte painting. The sun had to be opticalled in and rotoscoped and anyone who moved in front of the sun had to be rotoscoped out."

-Doug Trumbull
