This is another good example of how to make a visceral and disturbing scene kid-friendly. This time it was the very intense scene from JP2 where the Velociraptor pack attacks the Ingen men in a field of long grass.
The original movie sequence is beautifully choreographed with trademark touches from the Spielberg canon. Working with my director we re-imagined a scenario where the Raptors are more interested in the contents of the mens’ packs rather seeing the men as actual food. Upon discovering a football they demonstrate their prowess in a casual kick around.
The initial previs took two days.
