Phil Tippett’s Prehistoric Beast

This stop motion short film, made in a garage in 1984, was the catalyst that launched the wild idea of creating an independent business whose sole purpose was to create animation for movies. And so began Tippett Studio. Phil sort of had an inkling that Dinosaurs might be once again popular as PB preceded a wave of popular interest in dinosaurs spurred on in 1990 with the publishing of Michael Crichton’s book, Jurassic Park and the subsequent blockbuster movie by Steven Spielberg in 1993.
