Cool swag: Dromaeosaurus 3D Print

Check out how awesome our 3D print turned out!

Our friends at Shapeways helped us transform Aybars Turan’s amazing (unfeathered) Dromaeosaurus model into a 3D powder-print! The 1/12 scale figure measures in at 16.75cm in length, and the Black Detail picked up the modeling detail with great beauty. Because of the nature of the prints, they are quite fragile. Some of the back and forth trouble shooting was due to the tiny "blowhole" in the dinosaur's body, which allowed him to be hollow.



Send us an email if you’re interested in purchasing your own Dromaeosaurus 3D print!

A successful film shoot!

Thank you, loyal Dino Hunt fans! Because of you, and the success of our IndieGoGo campaign, we were able to successfully film in Tahoe!

Over the course of three days, with help from 27 people, we had a spectacular film shoot! We had two units filming simultaneously, which kept our crew very busy!

“Herd Camp,” lead by Co-Director Lauren Kvalheim and Director of Photography Adam Ducharme, was on top a steep ridge where our herd of Styracosaurs grazed. From 6am to 6pm, under the blaring sun, “Herd Camp” trekked their equipment across the beautiful landscape. Just wait until you see the mountains!

Co-Director Amrinder Jassar and Director of Photography Megan McCarthy trail-blazed through mosquito-infested forests to film “Attack Camp.” The Dromaeosaur den was worth the sweat and antihistamines, as it was truly the perfect location for the end battle of Dino Hunt.

Stay tuned for some videos of our Tahoe adventure, so you can get a better sense of the production experience we all endured!



A very special thanks to Strawberry Lodge and the Eldorado National Forest US Forest Service for their support, and helping facilitate such a successful shoot! And many thanks to YOU, our loyal Dino Hunt fans!

Texture & Lighting Test + VFX Breakdown



Our 3D Character Designer, Aybars Turan, put together a beautiful test render / VFX breakdown of the dromaeosaurus he created. While these are not the final textures for the short film, the video is a fantastic representation of the quality of work our team can produce, and gives you insight into the process of compositing a CG dinosaur into a realistic landscape!

We hope you enjoy this peek into modeling and compositing! And dinosaur purists - don't worry. Our dromaeosaurus will be feathered!
