Re: jurassic park

Ben, the bone test which you see, is the one i did secretly. Stefen did the shader. no one including Dennis knew about this. i had it playing on a monitor in "large gfx" ( a room at ILM ) on the morning of Monday November 18 1991 purposely when Kathleen Kennedy and Frank Marshal walked in. i remembe...

Jurassic Park
