movie facts

Even though the movie is predominantly about dinosaurs and the special effects are ahead of its time, there was only 6 minutes of CGI run time during the whole film. It is said that the reason is because Steven Spielberg 'didn't think it would be beholden to intense scrutiny quite as well as the animatronic dinosaurs would'. The movie is a mixture of CGI and animatronics. In order to make sure no one got immediately taken out of the experience while watching it, Spielberg felt that they had to find the right blend of 'real' and CGI. Suspense was built using real moments with the occasional CGI. Spielberg consulted paleontologists in order to make the dinosaurs look as real as possible.
