Gather around the camp fire, I’m gonna share you a little story. (pretend there’s a campfire and be careful not to burn your face) ok so, many moons ago, when i was just a little boy, I loved my TV. I loved it so much it’s like my face was always glued to the TV watching many exciting cartoons and movies whenever i’m not playing outside with friends. (I only had two friends anyway) but I absolutely love spending quality movie time my tv because my cute, tiny, adorable and ever-caring mother would always buy VHS movies for me and my siblings to watch. (it was the best way to shut us up anyway because coming from a Mexican family, boy, we can rowdy!)
Anyway, so one night, my mother came home from her work and handed up a VHS movie of Jurassic Park. I remember being so excited about it because I have seen trailers about the movie and they seem very interesting. So during the time I was watching this movie, I was so mesmerized by all the realism of these dinosaurs and how great the story telling was. I had definitely had thought that it would be so cool to have a real dinosaur theme park. (without anyone being killed, of coarse) that park would be some kind of morbid form of Disneyland for me. To make a short story even shorter, Jurassic Park was awesome when i was a kid. (and still is) ^__^
So flash forward to many moons later, I had a great opportunity video edit two interviews of my close friend/film critic Rama from Ramascreen.com who had recently got a chance to attend a press day interview to celebrate the upcoming release of JURASSIC PARK TRILOGY on blu-ray which will hit the stores on October 25th, 2011.
He had the opportunity to interview 8-time Oscar winning VFX supervisor Dennis Muren of the Industrial Light & Magic (ILM), Oscar winning VFX supervisor Phil Tippett of Tippett Studio and Animatronic/special effects supervisor John Rosengrant of the Legacy Effects (formerly Stan Winston Studio) Rama also had a chance to interview actress Ariana Richards whom you may recognize from the first Jurassic Park movie, she played the teen girl named Lex Murphy. Ariana is also an accomplished, professional artist. Steven Spielberg has one of her watercolors in his office, so please make sure to visit her official website at galleryariana.com and view some of her fascinating works. Here are the videos below. Enjoy!
