Does anyone know how the necks were made for the velociraptor in Jurassic Park?
I've seen the special features but the details in which it was made I feel as left us in the dark. Does anybody know how this works? How is was made?
I know the video on here mentioned a spiral kneck piece. I imagine this would give the ability to have an open core while maintaining form and resistance. I'm not sure how they would've constructed this in the early 90's, but it seems like something that could be fairly easily designed and printed digitally. This is a question that I have often pondered myself.5
While I don't have the actual method used, the foam would most likely have been glued where a permanent connection was needed. It would also be possible to glue fabric tabs the neck and use a temporary method to attach the fabric to the skull like snaps, velcro, etc.
Foam, depending on the density, is great at holding its shape. In the case of the neck, the spaces between the form in the spiral allowed extra room for compression and less resistance for expansion.
