After an extensive four week shoot in Hawaii for Jurassic World, the production moved to New Orleans. For the past 22 years, the franchise itself has shot parts of all the films on the islands of both Oahu and Kauai, which are memorable for their iconic and scenic locations.
In Hawaii Film & Video magazine, producer Patrick Crowley discussed what Hawaii had to offer for the production and why they chose to return to Hawaii. It's not just the locations, but the tax incentives that the islands offer are beneficial for such a film.
Be sure to read the magazine here which reveals more about the production, including hiring crew on the islands and more!

Jurassic Park & Philosophy: An Interview with the Editors!
Posted by Jack DLM - Monday 29 September 2014 at 11:18AM - 3 Comments
Over the past couple of months, I have been speaking with the editor of a book titled 'Jurassic Park and Philosophy'. Nicolas Michaud got in touch with me a while back looking for a blurb for the back cover. Our writer Chris provided a quote after reading through the book (as pictured) and we now have interviewed Nicolas to tell us more about this fascinating book.
The book itself takes the views of twenty-one philosophers and investigates the implications that Jurassic Park has had on our lives. It asks an important question - should we bring back dinosaurs? Jurassic Park taught us an important lesson about nature. Life finds a way, and you cannot contain it.
It's a great read and something all Jurassic Park fans can enjoy! Click below to read our interview with Nicolas Michaud and Jessica Watkins.
East Dock sign to return in Jurassic World

Even though the filming has wrapped on Jurassic World, the teases still continue. Director Colin Trevorrow today tweeted an image of the infamous East Dock sign that Dennis Nedry knocked over with his jeep back in 1993.
The sign itself is covered is leaves which relates to the caption: "Autumn." Today also marks the first day of Autumn.
While this image brings back a great nostalgic feeling, there are some things to note. The sign was made of wood and after 20 years it would likely be well and truly decomposed. However, it looks in pretty great shape in the picture, which could mean that if we do see it in the film, it may be part of a flashback.
It's also worth noting that the tropical climate of Isla Nublar wouldn't neccessarily allow for the leaves to fall. While we can't prove that, we can only assume that's fact due to Isla Nublar being based on the Hawaiin islands.
The leaves could very well be general decay on the ground that's been untouched for so long. The leaves are similar to those seen in the final slate picture and the picture of Ty and Nick that were released not so long ago.
All things aside, the image is absolutely fantastic!

Today we are doing something a little different, and showcasing news that doesn't pertain directly to Jurassic Park, though it certainly should appeal to fans of dinosaurs and videogames.

For a mere $15 dollar pledge you can own Carnivores: Dinosaur Hunter Reborn upon release, as well as help expand the game into something bigger and better. In our exclusive interview with Digital Dreams Entertainment we discuss the Kickstarter, potential Jurassic Park "easter eggs", the possibility of hunting in locations inspired by Jurassic Park, mutant dinosaurs, Marine Reptiles and more!
