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?
