JURASSIC PARK TRICERATOPS - Puppeteering an Animatronic Dinosaur

Creating Jurassic Park's Triceratops. Behind-the-scenes footage showing the animatronic techniques and rehearsal process behind JP's sick dino.

To bring to life JURASSIC PARK’s sick Triceratops, Stan Winston Studio designed and built a full-size puppet that performed alongside the actors on location in Hawaii. SWS Triceratops mechanical designer, Al Sousa, recalled the mech design process: “We built a small-scale version of the character before the full-scale so we could show Stan how everything was going to work. The breathing mechanism was basically a post underneath that pushed a lever up and down [to move] the skin up and down… the tail mechanism had movement from side to side and also up and down.
 There were no hydraulics in this character. It was all just mechanical.”

NEON Magazine From 1997 Lists E.T. The Extra Terrestrial As A Movie You Should Avoid At All Costs

I must admit I don't remember Neon.  A film magazine for 'lads.'  I picked up this edition recently.  It's from May 1997 and has a rather nice Jaws cover.  The main article inside is "100 movies you must see before you die."  I have to say I'm not a huge fan of the writing style of the magazine.  I can see what they were trying to achieve.  A 'one of the lads' magazine that focuses on movies which, unfortunately has bad language throughout and a feeling of negativity rather than celebrating movies.  Sounds a bit like the Internet of today so maybe they were ahead of their time.

Never the less, Jaws is their number one movie you much watch before you die (Star Wars was number 11.)  A good choice.  However, I found it amusing that they list E.T. The Extra Terrestrial and It's a Wonderful Life as two movies you should avoid.  I feel that sentiment and happy endings just didn't cut it with the writers of this magazine.

INTERVIEW WITH STEVEN SPIELBERG AND TOM HANKS ON BRIDGE OF SPIES

STEVEN SPIELBERG AND TOM HANKS Q and A
BRIDGE OF SPIES IS AVAILABLE ON DIGITAL HD ON 14TH MARCH AND BLU-RAY AND DVD ON 28TH MARCH FROM TWENTIETH CENTURY FOX HOME ENTERTAINMENT
Steven Spielberg and Tom Hanks four-film collaboration is one of the greatest director-actor partnerships in movie history. Hanks’ ability to convey an all American dignity, wholesomeness and an understated heroism matched by Spielberg’s mastery of every aspect of moviemaking has informed films as diverse as WWII classic Saving Private Ryan (1998), colourful caper Catch Me If You Can (2002) and charming character comedy The Terminal (2004). Now their fourth collaboration, Bridge Of Spies takes them into the cauldron of the Cold War as Hanks plays James B. Donovan, a US insurance lawyer recruited by the CIA to negotiate a swap between Russian spy Rudolf Abel (Mark Rylance) and US pilot Gary Powers (Austin Stowell). The filmmaker and actor talk about the origins of the film, their passion for history and the little…

BRIDGE OF SPIES IS AVAILABLE ON DIGITAL HD ON 14TH MARCH AND BLU-RAY AND DVD ON 28TH MARCH FROM TWENTIETH CENTURY FOX HOME ENTERTAINMENT
“I’m really proud of it,” begins Steven Spielberg about his newest film Bridge Of Spies. His fourth collaboration with Tom Hanks following Saving Private Ryan (for which Spielberg won a Best Director Oscar), Catch Me If You Can and The Terminal, it follows insurance lawyer James B. Donovan (Hanks) as he is recruited to defend Russian spy Rudolf Abel (Mark Rylance) at the height of the Cold War, an assignment that leads to a life-threatening mission to East Berlin to secure a swap between Abel and US pilot Francis Gary Powers (Austin Stowell). Full of great performances, tense confrontations and bravura filmmaking, Bridge Of Spies continues the absorbing view of history contained in Spielberg classics like Schindler’s List and Lincoln combined with the nerve-shredding suspense of crowd-pleasers like Jaws and Jurassic Park.
