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.....

Ok, I'll do a quick re-read of the book, and edit in character descriptions as I find them.

name - who they are: anything that would help describe them physically

Prologue:
Roberta Carter - AKA Bobbie, visiting physician: American? (visiting from Chicago), cut-off jeans and tank top
Manuel Aragón - paramedic: native Costa Rican?
Ed Regis - guy from InGen bringing injured employee: "white man" "had a yellow slicker", red hair, Mets baseball cap. "he didn't  look like a contruction foreman. More like an executive."
(no name) - seriously injured employee: "a kid, no older than 18"
Elena Morales - midwife: 60 yrs old, gray-haired, "a strong woman with a practical, no-nonsense air"

Mike Bowman - guy driving his family to a deserted beach: 36 yr old real estate developer from Dallas
Ellen - Mike's wife: 30 yrs old, "a beautiful woman", was homecoming queen 10 yrs ago. Very insecure about her looks. Mike thinks she's a little too thin.
Christina - AKA Tina, their daughter: 8 yrs old
Dr. Cruz - Doctor who treats Tina: native Costa Rican? "radiates competence"
Dr. Marty Guitierrez - field biologist called in to figure out what bit Tina: "bearded man wearing khaki shorts and shirt". American, soft Southern accent
Dr. Richard A. Stone and "the technician"- run tests on a peice of dead lizard: no desciption
Alice Levin - another of Dr Stone's technicians: no description

Alan Grant - professor of paleontology: "barrel-chested, bearded man of 40", informal, "an outdoor man", "he took some pains to distance himself in dress and behavior from the Teacup Dinosaur Hunters, even delivering his lectures in jeans and sneakers". Wears jeans and a hawaiian shirt to the park.
Bob Morris - from the San Francisco EPA office: late 20s. Tie, briefcase, pants from a business suit, wing-tip shoes
Ellie Sattler - paleobotanist:24 yrs old, cut-off jeans, workshirt tied at midriff, darkly tanned, blond hair pulled back. So attractive that Morris gaped at her and Tim stared at her legs. (probably dressed differently for the trip to Hammond's island)
Donald Gennaro - InGen's legal counsel: mid-30s, stocky, muscular. Armani suit and wire-frame glasses.
Daniel Ross - AKA Dan, Gennaro's boss in the law firm: "cold as an undertaker in his dark pinstripe suit"
(no name) - Gennaro's secretary: no description
John Hammond - founder of InGen: short, 75ish, "flamboyant, a born showman". Wearing a sportcoat.

Biosyn's emergency board of directors meeting:
Dr. Lewis Dodgson - AKA Lew, head of product development at Biosyn (guy who bribes Nedry): 34 yrs old, hawk-faced, intense
Ron Meyer - one of the directors: no description
Steingarten - the head of biosyn: no description

Ian Malcolm - mathmatician:35 yrs old, tall, thin, balding, dressed entirely in black (shirt, trousers, socks, sneakers)
Dennis Nedry - programmer, system admin: "fat college kid", sloppy, sticky chocolate on his fingers, flecks of aluminum foil on his shirt
Timothy Murphy - Hammond's grandson: 11 yrs old, wears glasses
Alexis Murphy - AKA Lex, Hammond's granddaughter: 7-8 yrs old, blond, Mets baseball cap, baseball glove
John Arnold - InGen's chief engineer: thin, short-sleeve shirt and tie, smokes
Robert Muldoon - InGen's park warden, famous hunter from Nairobi: 50 yrs old, white, "burly man in khaki", sunglasses dangling from shirt pocket, "big man", steel-gray mustache, deep blue eyes, raised in Kenya
Dr. Henry Wu - InGen's chief geneticist: 30s, slender, oriental?

Dennis Nedry's flashback:
Barney Fellows - friend/colleague of Nedry's: no description
