Hey there!

Looks good...Except, you'd probably rather get a critique.

One word. 'Storytelling'

Are you just showing that you can put a dinosaur onto a clip? A few things kinda spoil it for me. The shot itself isn't very interesting, I mean just a dusty lot. The animation is unatural, kinda stiff and again, not too interesting. The T.rex is just sorta trudging along, he doesnt see the guy holding the video camera?

Overall looks like a good excercise, almost convincing. I would go for a more dramatic shot next time, not so static, add some camera shake as that 2 ton monster stomps the ground. I'd consider the POV of the cameraman, maybe hiding. Add more layers to the comp...maybe some forground elements to sell that it is really a dinosaur in the shot.

If you can refine the animation I think you could have a nice piece.

Just my 2 cents.

hi joel!
this t-rex was made only for test of my friend(mirco)
he use a ligtwave about 6 months e when i see him t-rex
i've decided to composite. for next time we think to
make batter, we try and believe.
we want to reproduce a one shot likely where probably, i hope,
some dinosaurs follow a car there will be some cut...
thanks for your reply and suggestion...
i'm think to talking about a some problem of animation and other stuff.

i'd say his legs should be less crouched (for being realistic)
also... they moved a bit less ridged and move that tail a bit more! they used it for balance as they walked.

to get an idea of how t-rex really moved study osterage foot movement, and elephants for size.

keep going!
