The Making of the Jurassic Park Spitter Dinosaur

by Kenny Hoeschen

Stan Winston School has posted a video showing the behind-the-scenes development that went into the creation of the Dilophosaurus dinosaur (aka “the spitter”) in Jurassic Park. Rick Galinson, lead mechanical designer on the Spitter (and the only guy who raised his hand to work on the Spitter), explains how the Spitter animatronic was designed from start to finish. Interestingly, the movements of the Spitter were based on the gate of an ostrich and the spitting mechanism was based on a compressed air paintball shooter.
