The late great Stan Winston was one of the undisputed masters of cinematic effects. With his team of make-up artists and puppeteers, Winston gave such films as Aliens and Predator an otherworldly sheen that's been seared into the collective memory of moviegoers for decades.
And on the Stan Winston School's YouTube account, there are tons of behind-the-scenes reels of the dinosaurs from the Jurassic Park films. Behold amazing footage of the velociraptors and Tyrannosaurus hanging out casually with their human puppet masters.

I love the pterodactyl with athletic shoes and white socks.
Wow, the first video is great. But, the last video — eww.
White sox? What nerds. No wonder they went extinct.
Indeed. Shoulda played football.
When I was young and watched this with my 85+yo grandma, she freaked out when the T-Rex ate the guy in the port-a-potty and asked me, “How did they train those dinosaurs to DO THAT?!?!?!?!?!” Hey, the movie said they cloned dinosaurs, right?
Wish I’d had these photos then. At the time I told her they were just like really well drawn cartoons that they put into a computer and moved around.
Winston did the FX for Carpenters The Thing. Still unsurpassed.
