Jurassic Park: Making of an Animatronic T-RexMay 1st, 2013
The Stan Winston School has posted some great behind-the-scenes videos showing how they built the tyrannosaurus rex and the velociraptors for the original Jurassic Park. The first video includes commentary from Alan Scott and Lindsay MacGowan, both of whom worked on building both of those models. The creators explain some of the unique, new technologies they created specifically for use in Jurassic Park. Originally, the dinosaur skins kept sliding down as the dinosaurs were moved. They had to be stitched and glued to the structure.
Part 2 of the video is available here.
