Meet the man behind Tron’s vehicles
ALERT! You can buy your own Light Cycle. Here’s our meeting last year with the original designer
Posted: 19 Aug 2011
A disciple of famous futurist and designer Syd Mead - who worked on Blade Runner and the original Tron - Daniel spent a year on the new film.
"I worked on most of the hero vehicles and lots of background cars. We did various versions of the light cycle, and also redesigned Syd Mead's original Light Runner, the
jets and the background cars. We didn't reskin existing cars to save budget; everything was designed from scratch. It was like working on 15 motor show concept car projects at the same time, without having to worry about engineers telling us what we could and couldn't do.
