JURASSIC PARK - Evolution of a Raptor Suit








THE ULTIMATE MONSTER SUIT CHALLENGE





Although Stan Winston Studio created multiple raptors for JURASSIC PARK, including full-size cable-controlled puppets, half-puppets and insert legs, some Raptor shots were most efficiently captured with a man in a suit. SWS supervisor John Rosengrant was pegged as the main Raptor suit performer, with SWS concept designer Mark “Crash” McCreery also pitching in when the shot required two raptors.


FITTING A MAN INSIDE A RAPTOR



To determine the suit’s configuration, the Winston team overlaid Raptor drawings on images of Rosengrant in various positions. The crew then did a body cast on him, and sculpted the Raptor form around that cast.
