Two more things..
One of my dinosaur books arrived today, Death And Discovery. There’s still four more to come, so fingers crossed for next week.
This book features only one illustration by Steve Kirk, the cover, but its a beauty as usual.
I can’t wait to see the others and get some ideas for the dino models.
Something else i wanted to share was a video i came across today that somehow i hadn’t seen before.
Moments That Changed Movies: Jurassic Park
I dunno how i missed this clip, its awesome.
Obviously made for the 21st birthday of Jurassic Park, it reveals a few new details about the transition from stop motion to full CGI. We all know the story about how the early CGI tests with the skeletons showed that the technology was ready, and so they switched from stop motion to CGI, but this clip focuses on the guys who were directly responsible for those tests.
Those guys have such a great job and love what they do so much, had it not been for their dedication and after hours work, who knows how the movie would have turned out and where the movie industry would be today.
Less than a month till Jurassic World comes out too. I’ve already got my IMAX tickets! 🙂
I’ve tried to avoid all news and promo clips, and only watched 2 of the actual trailers. I’d rather see the movie in the theatre than broken up into 500 small clips on the internet.
Seriously, why do people ruin it for themselves by obsessing over every single piece of info released. Do yourselves a favour and save it for the cinema!
I remember seeing just the one trailer for the original movie, and it premiered on Hey Hey It’s Saturday. I don’t think i ever seen anything else about it until it came out. In those days of low quality T.V, i have this memory of not seeing what it was that smashed through the fallen tree, chasing the Jeep. For some reason i thought it was some big sabre tooth cat thing. Hehe, stupid kid.
Man, if they ever invent something you can wear or ingest that allows you to relive your memories, watching Jurassic Park for the first time as a kid is surely my number one.
I could probably just take mushrooms and watch the first one.. Holy shit.
