As we reported recently, Universal Studios Home Video and Universal Pictures are creating a live webcast, hosted by AOL.com, from the set of the currently in-production Jurassic Park III. An exclusive online chat with Academy Award-winning special effects wizard Stan Winston will be accessible via the DVD-Rom link available to consumers who have purchased either Jurassic Park or The Lost World: Jurassic Park on DVD. As we promised, here are the details:
Beginning at 5pm (PST) on December 4, 2000, all visitors to either www.AOL.com or www.jurassicpark.com will be able to view the first 30 minutes of the live webcast in which Stan Winston will give a sneak-peek at some of the dinosaurs appearing in ‘Jurassic Park III’.
At 5:30pm (PST) , immediately following the publicly-accessible webcast, AOL.com will host an exclusive live chat with Mr. Winston. This special event will be accessible only via the DVD-ROM link on the ‘Jurassic Park’ and ‘The Lost World: Jurassic Park’ DVDs.
‘Jurassic Park III’ stars Sam Neill, William H. Macy, Tea Leoni, Alessandro Nivola, Michael Jeter and Trevor Morgan and is directed by Joe Johnston. The screenplay by Peter Buchman is based on characters created by Michael Crichton. Kathleen Kennedy and Larry Franco are the producers and Steven Spielberg will serve as executive producer.
