Tippett Studio's "Jurassic Park" Stop Motion Animation Tests

to be honest, the effort Tippett Studio put into Jurassic Park is insane! Whether you loved the film, or hated it so much that you punched the big inflatable t-rex outside the theater, I think we can all agree that it was film history being made.  Other times being The Wizard of Oz, Star Wars, Who Framed Roger Rabbit, and Avatar, which are the other films that broke the box-office and the special effects barrier.

These tests were also the first film to push the Stop Motion bar up a notch with inventing the DID (direct input device).  The DID system is a motion capture system that links Stop Motion up with computer graphics technology.  So that the moves are programmed in before anything was actually filmed.  A very ingenious design.  But we also have to thank good ol' DID for all the CGI effects in blockbusters today.  Whether you loved or hated it here you are, the Stop Motion/Go-Motion tests for Jurassic Park...
