This summer, plastic dinosaur figurines and inflatable dino suits were in demand. Lush Green Mountain locations doubled for the fictitious tropical Isla Nublar. Vermonters donned wigs and khakis to reprise roles made famous by Jeff Goldblum and Laura Dern. And altogether, 37 teams of community filmmakers created their own version of a scene from the blockbuster Jurassic Park as part of Crowdsourced Cinema VT. For the second year, community media centers affiliated with Vermont Access Network (VAN) took part in this statewide project coordinated by Media Factory and open to anyone in Vermont - no experience necessary. Teams worked to create their scenes using all available tools: they borrowed green screens from their local community media center; created special effects and fake blood; and ran from dinosaurs made out of toys, paper, puppets, and animated drawings.
