Jurassic Park Veteran Launches His First NFT | Digital Trends Spanish

NFTs are here to stay, or so it seems after seeing that football teams and movies are selling these kinds of unique digital products. And now a veteran of the special effects industry joins, who put on sale a segment of an animated short type stop motion called Dinosaur! from the year 1984.

The artist in question the Phil Tippett, known for his work on Return of the jedi Y Jurassic park, films for which he won two Oscars thanks to his animation effects. Talking to the site Deadline, Tippett’s company (precisely called Tippett Studio) explained that a segment of the tape can be purchased with Ethereum through the SuperRare store.

This segment is 1 minute and 9 seconds long and will be the first of eight NFT-type digital pieces that Tippett Studio will put on sale. Regarding the first segment in question, Phil Tippett himself says that it is one of the favorite parts of his animated short about dinosaurs, which in a way is considered one of the first seeds before Jurassic Park.

Phil Tippett has a few decades of experience in the Hollywood special effects industry. His first works date from the 70s, when he was part of the trilogy of Star wars and the then nascent Industrial Light & Magic company, created by George Lucas.

Tippett first devoted himself to stop motion, until the creation of dinosaurs by computer from Jurassic park (film in which he worked as supervisor of animal animation) forced him to evolve his art and leave the most outdated methods in the past.

As a curious fact, a phrase by Phil Tippett in real life appears in Jurassic Park: upon learning that the dinosaurs in the film would not be animated by stop motion Instead, on CGI, Tippett said it had just been “extinct.”
