Yesterday, I got the chance to speak with award-winning visual effects supervisor Phil Tippett, known for his work on Jurassic Park, Star Wars, Indiana Jones, Robocop and now Jurassic World. While he couldn't give out any crucial information on the film, he spoke a lot about working on Jurassic Park in 1992 and how technology has changed since then. Here are some Jurassic World tid-bits!
Jack: When do you think you’ll start, within the next couple of weeks?
Phil: I don’t know, we’re still figuring that out but it’s coming up pretty soon, we’re going to start production meetings and they’re off on location scout this week, so once they get back we’ll start figuring out where to move next.
Jack: Jack Horner’s mentioned that there’s going to be a new dinosaur in Jurassic World, and obviously I know you’re not really allowed to speak about it, but will there be new dinosaurs in the film?
Jack: Do you know if Jurassic World is relying more on VFX this time around or will the late Stan Winston’s legendary animatronics live on?
Phil: I think there’s going to be much more computer graphics and less on-set dinosaurs.
Jack: With so many original Jurassic Park alumni coming back, will Jurassic World be a return to the spirit of the first film?
Phil: I believe that is the hope.
Jack: And finally, could you say one thing to get people even more excited about the film?
Phil: It’s gonna be fantastic!
