How the ‘Spitter’ dino was made at Stan Winston Studio.
It’s the dino that faces off against Dennis Nedry (Wayne Knight), and was one of the only full practical creatures in the film.
Here, Mahan–in what may be his first ever podcast–talks to befores & afters editor Ian Failes about the design, sculpt, animatronic mechanics and puppeteering of the Dilophosaurus.
This includes the attempt to have the dino positioned on Mahan’s shoulders, and the trials and tribulations of trying to make its ‘spit’ work in a very humid shooting environment.Need After Effects and other VFX plugins? Find them at Toolfarm.
