Industrial Light & Magic shows us some of what they did to bring the special effects in Jurassic World to life. You expect the landscapes to be cleaned up and brightened, and of course the dinosaurs aren’t real, but there’s even more going on. For example, the Gyrosphere was cool, but the actual vehicle they used to film the movie was pretty darn cool, too!
It’s always a treat to see what’s real and what’s not in blockbuster movies, but what surprised me was how many of those dinosaurs started out as people running around before they added the computer-generated imagery. I wonder how well the job of “dinosaur stand-in” pays. -via Digg
