Title: For those of you who have read Jurassic Park
Post by: Liquid Snake on October 07, 2005, 11:45:38 AM
I'm making an animation of Jurassic Park based entirely on the book.  I need some input.
 
For one, what should the main view of the story be?  As in camera view...looking down, looking in the eyes of the characters, looking horizontally?

Once we figure that out, I need some artists.....

From the eyes of the characters, I think.

I'm going to start with Alan Grant....now that I've finished debugging the buttons in my animation.   Lets see......"barrel-chested", what does that mean?

Wow, Wikipedia and answers.com don't know.... ah ha, m-w.com says "having a large rounded chest". And here's an image Google found of "Barrel-chested Ted (http://www.ecse.rpi.edu/Homepages/rjradke/pics/princeton/p2.html)"

Alright, I have a general idea I think of that.   Now my next question.....What color do you think of when you think of a hawaiin t-shirt?

and one other thing, correct me if I'm wrong, but I think I remember in Gennaro's description that he's wearing cowboy boots....?

I have no idea about the hawaiian shirt - here's a Google images search: hawaiian shirt (http://images.google.com/images?q=hawaiian%20shirt&ie=utf-8&oe=utf-8&client=firefox-a&rls=org.mozilla:en-US:official&sa=N&tab=wi)

I might have missed that if it wasn't in his intro description... I dunno.

You could just take the descriptions as mere guidelines - you don't have to be accurate to the letter, if you don't want to.

True, but I want to give an animation entirely based on the book.  To me that means including all the details.

Hmm... recent research suggests that dinosaurs were actually fuzzy...


Title: For those of you who have read Jurassic Park
Post by: Liquid Snake on November 22, 2005, 02:13:19 AM
Fuzzy....huh?  I like the scaly version myself.  No one really knows anyway, so my guess is probably just as good as theirs.


Title: For those of you who have read Jurassic Park
Post by: Deleter on November 22, 2005, 06:31:29 PM
nevermind their degree and time devoted to that "guess"...


But personally since it is fiction, scaled dinosaurs is so much cooler, lol.

Maybe if they clone one finally.....Oh what am I thinking, we'd have another Jurassic Park!
