found this a couple days ago through a friend of facebook. I would kill to get one of those costumes!

Great puppetry on the part of those in the suits. The mannerisms are completely believable and there is a litheness to their motion that seems very natural. Well done!

Love it. We're seeing more and more of these suits and I feel like each puppet is a little bit smoother.

Not sure how I feel about the scale of these guys - that red one is supposed to be a raptor the size of a Rex? :S

Neato! How dey doo dat?

Matthew Meyer said...

That is absolutely fantastic. They move so realistically. I suppose it could even be used as an example of how real dinosaurs would have balanced themselves as they walked.

fantastic! reminds me of the raptors from the live Walking with Dinosaurs show.

Hey I wonder if that is one of 'ours', from Erth Visual and Physical?

That is really cool. I was a little disappointed that I could see the actor's legs, but I still can't figure out how the rest of that puppet works. Very nice.

Very amazing technology. Its a shame the effect was a little lost by seeing the human legs. Perhaps they can be sheathed in the costume in the future.

Those little boys were terrified and loving it at the same time!

I'm pretty sure these ARE the puppets from Walking With Dinosaurs. If you haven't seen the show - SEE IT. I'm going for the second consecutive year next week.
