Re: New Jurassic Park 3 Shot

Hello Ray and all,

Well, I was there at Winston's studio when the spino was created. From
beginning design stages to almost full completion of the animatronics. This
is a shot of him. The light and shadow in this shot make it look rather
strange. There are a lot of  anatomical inaccuracies in the reconstruction
unfortunately, but they were done to make the animal look more menacing.
Wait till you see the full design. It's rather nice, Crash McCreery did a
wonderful job.
