How To Feed A Brachiosaurus, According To Jurassic Park

hold on to your butts


The Stan Winston School of Character Arts has made us very happy by releasing behind-the-scenes videos of how the Jurassic Park dinosaurs were made. We saw a Raptor test, how a man fit inside a Raptor, and most recently, the Dilophosaurus. “It was the largest puppet we built that had absolutely no hydraulics in it. So it was weighty and a big challenge to get to move,” said lead Brachiosaurus artist Andy Schoneberg, “I got quite a workout on the jaw, making a big circular motion with this giant controller, getting everything moving and grinding properly.” Seriously, being next to one of their creations is the next best thing to being next to an actual dinosaur.
