On-Set Footage of Steven Spielberg directing JURASSIC PARK.

I particularly like the parts where he’s talking to Dean Cundey, the D.P. and where he’s blocking the actors.

This reminds me of the TV show Movie Magic which I used to watch religiously on Discovery channel in the 90’s. That and the time during freshman or sophomore year of high school my graphic design class all watched the making of Jurassic Park (on laserdisc!). At the time I was more into 3d animation, but I swear at that moment I was set on wanting to work for Pixar or doing 3d stuff for movies after we watched it.

Of course now you realize doing 3d animation for like a James Cameron or Michael Bay movie isn’t nowhere near as glamorous or just fun as you thought it was when you’re 16. So I’m glad to have switched career paths. But to this day though, I’ll still watch the shit out of a behind-the-scenes featurette of any given movie.

I WANT

One day I saw one of these Jurassic Park jeeps on I-4. I’m guessing either someone stole it from Universal Studios or is the biggest nerd ever.

Great Moments in Cinema: Jeff Goldblum’s laugh in Jurassic Park

Jurassic ParkDirector: Steven Spielberg1993
“Try to imagine yourself in the Cretaceous Period. You get your first look at this ‘six foot turkey’ as you enter a clearing. He moves like a bird, lightly, bobbing his head. And you keep still because you think that maybe his visual acuity is based on movement like T-Rex — he’ll lose you if you don’t move. But no, not Velociraptor. You stare at him, and he just stares right back. And that’s when the attack comes. Not from the front, but from the side. [Makes ‘whoshing’ sound] From the other two raptors you didn’t even know were there. Because Velociraptor’s a pack hunter, you see, he uses coordinated attack patterns and he is out in force today. And he slashes at you with this…a six-inch retractable claw, like a razor, on the the middle toe. He doesn’t bother to bite your jugular like a lion, say…no no. He slashes at you here…or here…or maybe across the belly, spilling your intestines. The point is…you are alive when they start to eat you. So you know…try to show a little respect.”
