the film snob

A cyberspace journal about my experiences as an NYU film school grad student, reviews of current and classic films, film and TV news, and the rants and raves of an admitted (and unapologetic) film snob.

CGI? What's That?!



This YouTube video doesn't come with any explanation. It is assumed to be behind-the-scenes work for Jurassic Park IV. Now while I think the Jurassic films have gotten progressively worse as the sequels arrived, this alone is enough to make me stand up and cheer like a deranged school boy. Shirking computer graphics for good, old fashioned movie magic, these artists (after you see this, what else can you call them?!) have come up with some props that are nothing short of revolutionary!

They were made for "Walking With Dinosaurs" series by the BBC, hence the WWD in the intro.

That is disappointing. Not that it in any way lessons my awe at their work, but I'd like to see some Hollywood types take some lessons from those guys. Absolutely spectacular work.

Yeah, it'd be nice to see some of that in a movie, instead of feeling like you're watching the most expensive video game sequence ever.
