    I saw this and thought it was interesting. Not sure where I should put it so I figured it could go here.
    Enjoy!



    So who's gonna build one? You know you want too!

    I had the extreme pleasure of talking with Marilyn Chaney who worked on this dinosaur. She told me how much less time (and projects) they had for this film. She said for Jurassic Park, they had lots of time and money to use to create those amazing practical effects, but for JW, it was far, far less. Then we talked about iron man suits and other amazing projects she's worked on. Super great lady, and one of the most interesting conversations I've ever had.

    Was Apatosaurus the only animatronic they did? The raptors they made looked like they were just static.

    She said the only practical effect with raptors was a harness for one. She was, it seemed, bummed that they didn't do more.
