Remember in 1993 when Jurassic Park was like…the end all, be all of special effects?
not gonna lie that still looks intimately real
I’m still somewhat convinced that someone sold their soul to create the special effects in Jurassic Park because that shit is over 20 years old and it still really, really holds up, better than the stuff in a lot of current movies, even.
Fucking witchcraft, man.
Fucking puppet in that shot too. Movies now adays have become so dependant on cgi to handle their effets they forgot, doing multiple types of effects trick the eye into believing what it is seeing. Take jurassic park for example. For the raptor scene in the kitchen, the raptor in the doorway is a man in a suit. The shot of the two entering in the kitchen three seconds later is cgi. The shot after is far away and is suit again. This tricks your eye because the first three seconds is a suit and you start going, oh it’s a suit- then BAM! Cgi motherfucker! It never allows time for your eye to adjust to either effect.
That is also why the ONLY bad effect in the movie is the scene of the Brachiosaurus because the shot is held for an extended time and the whole time it is cgi.
Also, the giant t-rex puppet is in the toys-r-us in New York in times square. It’s head follows.you when you’re in front of it. It nearly gave me a heart attack.
