When the first Jurassic Park film premiered in 1993 audiences were blown away by the megasaurus-sized action taking place on the screen, but nobody got into the first flick quite like the kiddos.
90s kids had their tiny worlds rocked by the dinosaur based destruction they saw on the big screen, and for most, Jurassic Park became a fond memory from their childhood.
However, some kids didn't see the movie as mere spectators, they saw it through the eyes of budding filmmakers and found themselves inspired.
Two young moviemakers named Michael Raisch and David Chakris decided to create their own "remake" of Jurassic Park using their toys, hand drawn sets and a VHS camera. From Michael's website:
In the summer of 1993 inspired by the release of Jurassic Park, Michael and David set out to recreate the excitement and visuals of the hit film. Over a period 6 months in New Jersey they filmed multiple versions of the film until they were pleased with their final version. Equipped with the best VHS era technology, [Michael and David] re-created the movie magic of Jurassic Park with hand drawn sets, action figures and fishing line.
It's incredible what David and Michael were able to accomplish with so little, and Michael has gone on to a successful career in graphic design and video that all began with this Jurassic Park short.
