It’s a huge day for me. See, I’d wanted to be a paleontologist. I loved dinosaurs. They were the dragons that were real. But at some point, I’d started to realize that it was all bones and dust and that I’d never really see one of these majestic creatures alive…
Then I saw Jurassic Park. I vividly remember the moment in the theater, twenty years ago today, when that Brachiosaurus strides up the hill. And in that instant, it was alive to me, really alive, and I knew in my marrow that I wanted that magic.
Today, exactly twenty years later, I’m a few weeks away from my own movie, with vfx by the exact same house that breathed life into that very dinosaur walking up the hillside. And not a day goes by that I don’t thank that stupid kid for thinking he could do this.
