To me there is a separate kind of romance that this is a screen test "prop" and probably never made it to a set. This is what the technicians were playing around with to get the idea right, in those magic early 1990 years, then tossed into an ILM closet for decades. I don't know, not a hero prop, but still special.
My question about Adam Savage is still at large though.
I'd love to hear him talk about Jurassic Park, I just don't think he has (that I can find).
* So he's a Star Wars guy. SW is ILM, which did all the JP full motion dinosaurs, plus he freaking worked there
* He's got enough Terminator stuff laying around. Terminator was Stan Winston, who was JP, a franchise which until JW had some of the best/most groundbreaking/done once never done again on screen animatronics made.
* JP is a replica prop/cosplay mecca. How many John Hammond canes have fans built? Costumes? Animals, weapons, entire damn vehicles?
I don't know where I'm going with this, I just want to hear Adam talk JP sometime. It seems right up his alley, cornerstone to some of his favorite industries, yet I really think the video I posted is the first time I've heard him say 'Jurassic Park'.
