Dino Hunt is a dinosaur inspired short film, in which a herd of Styracosaurs are hunted by a pack of Dromaeosaurs. The short uses a CG dinosaurs that are composited onto environment plates that are shot in the real world, and for that Lake Tahoe, CA. While slotted to be finished for June 2014 seems like a long ways away, a lot of care is being put into the short as it is not just about a bunch of dinosaurs running around but also being as accurate and possible, with consultations with many paleontologists, in order to bring life into the extraordinary creatures.
I know quite of lot of the people working on it from the CG side and it is looking extremely amazing. It is beautiful and hopefully, maybe, that I will get a chance to work on a shot or two for Dino Hunt.
