It goes without saying that we here at Geekosystem 1) enjoy Jurassic Park and 2) love us some animatronics. With these two facts in mind, it should then come as no surprise that the series of videos released by the Stan Winston School of Character Arts about the creation of the animatronic Tyrannosaurus rex puppet for Jurassic Park is also right up our alley. There are three videos that detail a lot of the thoughts and processes that went in to creating the behemoth.
It’s a lot to process, though there’s only 12 or so minutes worth of footage. If you don’t know anything about mechanical engineering or animatronics, this will blow you away. Even those that have some hint of what went on beneath should find the look behind the scenes fascinating.
