WEBVTT 00:00:00.149 --> 00:00:03.450 (music) 00:00:03.450 --> 00:00:10.450 >>RICHARD LANDON: The mechanical segments are 00:00:14.570 --> 00:00:17.230 similar to the T-Rex in their 00:00:17.230 --> 00:00:21.189 weldments. Their huge steel almost like a 00:00:21.189 --> 00:00:23.380 train or a bridge construction. 00:00:23.380 --> 00:00:26.679 And they've got miles of wiring running through the center section 00:00:26.679 --> 00:00:29.980 that basically is the nervous system, it hooks the points of motion ... 00:00:29.980 --> 00:00:30.759 >>JOHN ROSENGRANT: He's 12 tons. 00:00:30.759 --> 00:00:34.570 >>RICHARD LANDON: Yeah. And it hooks the points of motion up to the computer so you can control 00:00:34.570 --> 00:00:35.270 it with a 00:00:35.270 --> 00:00:39.670 level or safety and a level of a finesse. 00:00:39.670 --> 00:00:46.670 >>JOHN ROSENGRANT: There's a graphite skull which is light and strong. 00:00:46.980 --> 00:00:49.350 Everything has to be welded to a stand ... 00:00:49.350 --> 00:00:53.580 >>RICHARD LANDON: It's all welded to a mechanical sub structure that has to be 00:00:53.580 --> 00:00:53.830 Aero space ... 00:00:53.720 --> 00:00:56.330 >>JOHN ROSENGRANT: No, I mean, but the standard of the welding has to ... 00:00:56.330 --> 00:01:01.170 you just can't tack this stuff together. It has to be ... a 00:01:01.170 --> 00:01:02.660 certain engineering grade because of ... 00:01:02.660 --> 00:01:03.940 >>RICHARD LANDON: We actually have the weldings ... 00:01:03.940 --> 00:01:05.800 the weldments are actually tested. 00:01:05.800 --> 00:01:10.240 There is a certifying agency that comes in and will 00:01:10.240 --> 00:01:12.880 actually tell you whether or not you have a good weld or a bad weld. 00:01:12.880 --> 00:01:14.140 >>JOHN ROSENGRANT: The detail. 00:01:14.140 --> 00:01:15.960 You can see, just in the tongues alone 00:01:15.960 --> 00:01:18.900 and there's multiples of everything because there was a 00:01:18.900 --> 00:01:21.920 sort of a stunt version done and then there was the 00:01:21.920 --> 00:01:23.210 main hydraulic one 00:01:23.210 --> 00:01:28.670 and sometimes there's back up pieces to accompany that if you know it's going to be damaged. 00:01:28.670 --> 00:01:29.530 Huge foot. 00:01:29.530 --> 00:01:33.870 But it's just not colored in one 00:01:33.870 --> 00:01:36.820 big broad sweep of color. There's a lot of breakup 00:01:36.820 --> 00:01:41.040 and detailing. There's the eyes, 00:01:41.040 --> 00:01:44.210 which were riffed off of a crocodile. 00:01:44.210 --> 00:01:46.600 Here, starting to assemble 00:01:46.600 --> 00:01:50.470 pre-painted skin pieces, but those weren't� 00:01:50.470 --> 00:01:56.470 it wasn't completely finished until it was packed up and moved down to set, 00:01:56.470 --> 00:01:59.150 which is quite an undertaking in itself 00:01:59.150 --> 00:02:04.590 as this would go on huge tractor trailer. 00:02:04.590 --> 00:02:09.649 >>RICHARD LANDON: It was a lot bigger than the T-Rex. The actual door 00:02:09.649 --> 00:02:13.239 to the building had to be opened all the way to the ceiling because 00:02:13.239 --> 00:02:14.650 when we built it, it was too big to get out. 00:02:14.650 --> 00:02:19.219 We had to actually do actually damage our own building to get it out the door and fix 00:02:19.219 --> 00:02:19.469 the door. 00:02:19.219 --> 00:02:22.299 >>JOHN ROSENGRANT: The transportation of this being lifted with cranes. 00:02:22.299 --> 00:02:24.519 The logistics alone, 00:02:24.519 --> 00:02:29.560 it's enormous. This is 3:00 in the morning when we're moving it out. 00:02:29.560 --> 00:02:34.650 Here we are starting to load it in. You can see the transportation. 00:02:34.650 --> 00:02:39.299 It had to travel at night on a certain path because it couldn't go under bridges 00:02:39.299 --> 00:02:41.049 and they were afraid, 00:02:41.049 --> 00:02:43.709 'they' meaning the 00:02:43.709 --> 00:02:47.969 city of Los Angeles that it had to travel a certain time period because it would stop 00:02:47.969 --> 00:02:49.950 traffic. 00:02:49.950 --> 00:02:53.590 We needed to have to Universal Studios before 7AM. 00:02:53.590 --> 00:02:57.590 >>RICHARD LANDON: Harder to move than moving a house. 00:02:57.590 --> 00:03:02.059 >>JOHN ROSENGRANT: Funny story on the first Jurassic Park was 00:03:02.059 --> 00:03:07.680 one of the security guards didn't know it was coming and wanted to turn it away. 00:03:07.680 --> 00:03:12.079 Here we are finishing it up on set, 00:03:12.079 --> 00:03:14.659 putting the final details together. 00:03:14.659 --> 00:03:16.950 It still had a ways to go. 00:03:16.950 --> 00:03:18.309 It's starting to look more real 00:03:18.309 --> 00:03:23.870 but a lot of nuances still missing off of it. 00:03:23.870 --> 00:03:27.099 >>RICHARD LANDON: Just like what the T-Rex on the first Jurassic Park film, 00:03:27.099 --> 00:03:30.739 there's a installation and a test and adjust phase when you first build it into the set. 00:03:30.739 --> 00:03:34.159 >>JOHN ROSENGRANT: This was one of the biggest states at Universal. 00:03:34.159 --> 00:03:38.239 They had this amazing jungle set built around it. 00:03:38.239 --> 00:03:41.719 It's hooked down onto almost a rail road track, 00:03:41.719 --> 00:03:45.150 which enabled it to move forward and backwards 00:03:45.150 --> 00:03:49.579 and then moving up and down on its cylinders. 00:03:49.579 --> 00:03:55.029 As we stated earlier, 00:03:55.029 --> 00:03:57.109 it's about a thousand horsepower. 00:03:57.109 --> 00:03:58.519 It really, literally 00:03:58.519 --> 00:04:04.909 feels like a bus going by you when it's moving at full speed. 00:04:04.909 --> 00:04:05.459 This day 00:04:05.459 --> 00:04:08.719 was on a Sunday before we were going to shoot. We were there 00:04:08.719 --> 00:04:11.549 that whole weekend, prepping it, getting it ready. 00:04:11.549 --> 00:04:16.750 There is a telemetry device and starting and moving the hands around. 00:04:16.750 --> 00:04:18.870 This was our opportunity ... actually, 00:04:18.870 --> 00:04:21.650 this was actually about a week before we were going to shoot, 00:04:21.650 --> 00:04:24.550 but we still had it coming on Saturday when the other 00:04:24.550 --> 00:04:27.550 filming wasn't going on Saturday and Sunday 00:04:27.550 --> 00:04:30.759 so that we would start to get familiar with the creature. 00:04:30.759 --> 00:04:32.180 Start to work out certain 00:04:32.180 --> 00:04:34.530 moves and 00:04:34.530 --> 00:04:39.550 everyone would get up to speed on what this Spinosaur character was.
