percyvex:

god im so not looking forward to two weeks of being an avid keyleth fan and percy/vex fan and hearing both sides demonize the other

or keyleth vs scanlan w sprigg stuff

[banging pots and pans together] things can be and are complex!!!!! relationships and motivations are complex!!!!! characters can feel things that overlap!!!!! characters can be upset with each other without it “wiping entire platonic relationships out”!!!!! characters can be imperfect and do imperfect things and lash out or do things that upset others but make them happy!!!!!! let characters be imperfect and interesting and let that shit play out!!!!!

Remember in 1993 when Jurassic Park was like…the end all, be all of special effects?

image

not gonna lie that still looks intimately real

I’m still somewhat convinced that someone sold their soul to create the special effects in Jurassic Park because that shit is over 20 years old and it still really, really holds up, better than the stuff in a lot of current movies, even.

Fucking witchcraft, man. 

image

fucking look at this shit though

image

Literally see this post flying around with a few different responses added to the bottom each time so I’ll say it for this one myself:

THEY ACTUALLY BUILT A GIANT MASSIVELY DETAILED FUCKING ANIMATRONIC T-REX FOR ALL OF THIS THAT’S WHY THE EFFECTS ARE SO GOOD. CAUSE IT AIN’T CGI. AND IT AIN’T GUY IN A COSTUME. IT’S A BIG FUCKING ROBOT DINOSAUR. AND EVERY PART IS DESIGNED TO MOVE. IT COST LIKE HALF THE BUDGET OF THE FILM.

amazing

And they had the film it in small increments, especially in the outdoor scenes, because the rain fall kept soaking into the ‘skin’ of the rex and would slow down and mess up its movements. So they would stop filming and have a crew out there drying off this massive, fake dinosaur, and then they’d start filming again until it was too wet. Repeat until the end of the scene.

They used animatronics and detailed costumes for most if not all of the dinosaurs in the first movie.

The triceratops for instance, was also animatronic.

And the raptors were dudes in suits. I shit you not.

One of my favorite anecdotes I’ve read on tumblr is how the t-rex robot from Jurassic park would malfunction while it was drying out. How did it malfunction, you might wonder?

Motherfucker randomly started moving.

So apparently if you were on the jp set you would sometimes hear people screaming bloody murder even though they were all well aware that it was a giant animatronic puppet and wouldn’t actually, you know, eat them.

(link to said post about malfunctioning t-rex)

Did not know this, had to reblog for awesome movie history insights.

So, I knew about the animatronics bit but I did not know the raptors were guys in suits and the malfunctioning t-rex sounds terrifying.

And i just googled malfunctioning t-rex and was not disappointed. Apparently in order to put the skin on over the steel frame a guy had to crawl inside the t-rex while it was turned on and glue the skin down. And if somebody turned the t-rex off or the power went out the guy in the t-rex stood a very real chance of getting mangled and killed by the hydraulics.

So of course, the power goes out.

And this guy is still in there gluing the skin down.

Apparently the way to survive getting sheered to death by huge sheets of metal while you’re inside a giant t-rex robot is to curl into a ball and hope for the best.

And this guy hoped for the best and got it.

Some other people on stage pried open the t-rex jaws and glue guy crawled out of its mouth and was totally okay.

This is getting better and better.

I think they only had like 6 minutes of CGI

I’m just waiting for the T-Rex to come to life and leave its stand.

@spinosaurus-the-fisher is this the kind of content you love?

Realism comes at a cost, it seems.

i mean ok but why has nobody posted this:

It’s a three piece raptor suit.

Old movies had the best special effects

The thing about this that gets my special effects nerd going is the fact that EVERY single dinosaur was sculpted by artists based on the current existent archeological evidence of the time.

@shepfax

Even better than that, this movie ADVANCED our best understanding of dinosaurs at the time.  They were blowing out a budget bigger than anything Hollywood had ever seen, and along with employing almost the last hurrah of incredible physical FX, they had a bank of those newfangled digital SFX computers.  Nobody’d ever really created convincing dinosaurs in a movie before.  It’d all been stop-motion animation, and even when the models were exquisitely crafted, you could just tell there was something OFF about them.  Spielberg wanted THE BEST DINOSAURS EVER, and he figured on using the cutting edge of digital modeling and animation technology to build them for him.

So they got hold of some of the best paleontologists they could find and said, “We want you guys to take this tech that your labs could pretty much never afford and use it to build us the most realistic, accurate dinosaur models the world has ever seen.”

The paleontologists knew an opportunity when it bit them in the ass.  They plugged in everything they knew about dinosaurs, all the skeletons and their best guesses about soft tissue and all that.  And when they’d created those dinosaur models, they had the computer start moving them as they realistically would with anatomy like that.  One guy took a look at those walking t-rexes and velociraptors (really utahraptors, but whatevs, fam), and he said, “Wait a minute, I’ve seen movement like that before.”

He called up film of a chicken walking.  Everyone in the room said, “Holy shit.”

Prior to 1989, the idea that birds were descended from dinosaurs existed–we knew about archaeopteryx, we knew there was some minor connection there–but the idea that DINOSAURS LIVE IN THE MODERN WORLD AND THEY ARE CALLED BIRDS was not pre-eminent.  Jurassic Park changed our scientific understanding of dinosaurs.

That paleontologists’d be Kevin Padian. Who is awesome.

percyvex:

jeez isnt it funny how vex and percy can get married because they gave in to a whim to bind themselves together because they’re in love and not be insensitive monsters rubbing their relationship in vax and keyleth’s faces (because they’ve literally done no such thing lmao)

and isn’t it funny how keyleth being upset she’ll never get that and responding to that is also valid (because her reaction was extreme and guilt-blamey towards vex and percy yes, but she’s grieving that part of her future)

and isn’t it also funny how vax can be upset about his sister marrying percy in secret after she made vax promise not to do the same thing (because broken promises always suck and he wanted to be there and he’s running out of time for his own relationship)

and isn’t it funny how these four have a complex relationship dynamic right now and if you’re breaking it down into who’s wrong and bad vs who’s right and good you’re objectively wrong and oversimplifying things

isn’t that funny

About the fandom wank and ship wars, ssshhhhh

Look, i’m over the fucking moon about the wedding as i have been shipping Perc’ahlia from day one but i am  also fucking devastated for Vaxleth.

They are all in character, perc’ahlia isn’t shoving it in our faces, that didn’t mean for it to come out, they were definitely not trying to hurt their family doing it, and the entire thing happened before this Vecna mess and Vax’s death and resurrection time limit.  

It’s been two fucking days in-game!  Keyleth is allowed to be unstable and hurt and furious!   Her boyfriend was vaporized, he was brought back and given a time limit and now her worst fucking fear from the beginning is coming true.  They are dealing with gods which is uncomfortable especially now knowing one will be taking the person she loves away from her.  They just met an old gnome who may have been talking to Scanlan about running away but this entire thing about being “i am your future” was another fucking worst fear thrown right in front of her reminding her merely a day after she knows her fear is coming true.  On top of that she thought she learned that her best friend and good friend were engaged because Percy brought it up before a god because he asked about what Vex meant to him, only to find out…oh no..they’re married.  They didn’t purposely hurt her but it’s just another thing that she could have had that’s been unceremoniously ripped away from her.  

SHE IS ALLOWED TO BE ANGRY AND HURT, IT’S BEEN TWO DAYS

And Vax…he’s allowed to be hurt and quiet too.  He may not say much and he did tell her he wanted her to be happy before when he came back but he’s allowed to be hurt because of the promise she made him make.  And honestly i think he’s more sad…over how Keyleth is hurting.  That’s gotta break his heart.  Because he knows, he knows her worst fears and he’s sad that he’s partly the cause of it because of the deal he made.

Again, it’s been two days, they are allowed to be hurting and devastated and furious…because….we know we all would too in the same situation.

I am so happy and ecstatic about my otp but don’t think for one minute it doesn’t break my heart to see vaxleth suffering.

So if you’re saying they are being irrational or over the top….stop and put yourself in their shoes.  If you are a perc’ahlia person like me, especially…just stop.  If you are going to bash perc’ahlia just because stop.  It’s not the entirety of us and there are several non-shippers being all up in arms too, just….ffs, everyone fucking stop. 

Let people be happy.  Let people be sad.  Don’t go into another bullshit ship-war.  Don’t fucking bash the cast.  

Be.  Fucking.  CIVIL.  for fucking once.

v0x-mach1na:

I will defend both my otps till the fucking death. Let vex and Percy be happy and let keyleth and Vax be unhappy.
