Re: Remember Phil Tippett's Prehistoric Beast?

I was 15 when the DINOSAUR! special first aired in 1985...Christopher Reeve 
narrated the show...There is an American Cinematographer issue that had a nice 
article on Tippett and Co.'s work....The deinonychus sequence with the pair of 
deino's chasing the ornithomimid, to me, is still one of the great stop motion 
sequences ever shot...Hopefully it will come out on DVD, if it isn't already....

I actually called Phil Tippett around 1988 and found out that he was selling 
16mm copies of PREHISTORIC BEAST for $200! Wonder what it would fetch today?
