Director of Jurassic World has tweeted the following photograph of Phil Tippett with the words “welcome back, Phil.”
So it seems the visual effects supervisor who worked with his go-motion effects is back in the dino world. He of course is famous for saying “I’ve just become extinct” after seeing the CGI effects from ILM. Later Spielberg used the line in the first Jurassic Park movie. The director also kept Tippett on to supervise the animation of over 50 dinosaurs. The work earned him an Oscar for his work.
Here’s the tweet.
