This morning Colin Hart and Ethan Hart from HeyUGuys got up early to meet one of the stars of Jurassic World Dominion: a never- before-seen life-size Giganotosaurus. The dinosaur, featured in the epic conclusion of the Jurassic era that is coming to cinemas 10th June, has been brought to life in London’s Trafalgar Square using first-of-its-kind filmmaking technology.
Universal Pictures and Amblin Entertainment have again teamed up with the award-winning VFX leaders at Industrial Light & Magic to resurrect a full-size Giganotosaurus in a unique, unmissable immersive experience that champions the unrivalled, groundbreaking legacy of Jurassic World’s visual effects and technology. The installation is running from Wednesday 25th May to Sunday 29th May.
Universal Pictures and Amblin Entertainment have again teamed up with the award-winning VFX leaders at Industrial Light & Magic to resurrect a full-size Giganotosaurus using the latest in virtual production technology from the film industry in the UK. Using an 8m x 8m high-resolution LED screen, the Trafalgar Square background will be recreated from LiDAR scans and photogrammetry.
Visitors have the opportunity to capture their experience with the Giganotosaurus, as well as exploring a specially built Dinosaur Tracking Base displaying artefacts from the films, including a model of Velociraptor Blue, a dinosaur egg incubator, and a cast of the only Giganotosaurus skull ever discovered, which was uncovered in the Candeleros Formation of Patagonia in 1993.
