It’s rare these days to get to do a project “just for fun,” but when you happen to end up on the backlot for the Jurassic Park series, its not hard to let your inner child out.
My good friends Stephenie and Matt had an amazing wedding at Kualoa Ranch on O’ahu, so I had to take advantage of replicating the visuals from the iconic and eye-popping film. As a kid, Jurassic Park was a major inspiration for me getting into animation and visual effects. The movie changed the game in terms of creating a realistic organic life form for film. A perfect blend of practical and digital effects were used to scare the crap out of the audience.
Recreating the famous t-rex was done using a 3-D model in Maya, and then compositing finished in Photoshop.
Looking forward to the new Jurassic World film coming out this summer!
