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.

The great German filmmaker Werner Herzog comes to the University of South Florida Nov. 19 at 3 p.m. to show and discuss a new work in progress — a rare treat for Tampa Bay film lovers.
The event, “An Afternoon with Werner Herzog” is free and open to the public and will be held in USF’s new Interdisciplinary Sciences Building (ISA) on the Tampa campus, Room 1051.
“Mr. Herzog will be in Sarasota teaching a filmmaking workshop at the Ringling College of Art and Design, and we are very fortunate that he is making the time to stop in Tampa to spend time with students and the public here,” said Margit Grieb, associate professor of German in the Department of World Languages. “He said his priority is having the opportunity of sharing his work with students and generously said yes to my request.”
