New TERMINATOR 2: JUDGMENT DAY VFX Test Clips, Featuring An Ashy Sarah Connor

James Cameron's Terminator 2: Judgment Day (1991) was a groundbreaking film, with lots of cutting edge visual effects. Now, Stan Winston School has released test clips from two iconic scenes. Bonus! Can you spot the movie mistake in this Jurassic Park Gif?

Stan Winston School recently posted an article detailing the visual effects that went into Sarah Connor's (Linda Hamilton) nightmarish dream sequence scene, and the scene when the T-1000 kills John Connor's stepfather.

SARAH CONNOR’S FIERY DOOM - "The third and final puppet — an ashen form that blows away in the wind, exposing the charred skeleton beneath — was the most difficult, requiring much research and development. To create the effect, Shannon Shea reinforced a medical demonstration skeleton with a steel armature, and then positioned it to match the ending pose of the stage two puppet. To create the ashen material, Shea laid tissue paper and tempera paint into the mold of the initial screaming Sarah form. When it dried, he pulled that ‘skin’ out of the mold and carefully laid it on the skeleton like papier-mâché. Additional floating ash was simulated with gray and black paper napkins, shredded in a kitchen blender and stuffed into the form. Just prior to cameras rolling, Winston’s crew scored the form with an X-acto knife. When the special effects crew blasted it with air mortars, all the delicate skin and shredded napkin material blew off the skeleton like ash." - Stan Winston School

LIQUID METAL BLADE HAND KILL - "In another scene, the T-1000 kills John Conner’s foster mother Janelle (Jenette Goldstein) and takes her form. Stan Winston Studio sculpted and produced a tapered blade arm, attached by strap to Goldstein, for a shot of the woman driving the blade through the head of her husband, Todd (Xander Berkeley). As the T-1000’s weapon of choice, blades built for the show would number in the hundreds. Although seemingly simple, the blades posed continual challenges to Stan Winston Studio artists and technicians, since the vacumetalizing process revealed even the most minute flaws in their form. The Janelle blade arm, for example, which was made of fiberglass and ABS plastic, had to be made and remade multiple times before the crew produced a perfect specimen." - Stan Winston School


During Steven Spielberg's Jurassic Park, the overweight and slobbish computer programmer, Dennis Nedry (Wayne Knight), is seen chatting with a dock worker via his computer. Now, look carefully at the Gif for the movie mistake. Don't cheat by looking at the comment section.

Jurassic Park. The water is gushing one way and the wind is blowing the other way.

I thought that the mistake in the Jurassic Park gif was that the video is supposed to be live, but there's a timeline at the bottom.

No. It's possibly for water to gush one way while the wind is blowing the other. What are you talking about?

It's obvious that it's playing a video, as opposed to him live chatting with someone.

Id love to see some one make A JP film identical to the book like 100% of how everything plays out in the book to the last detail. If you have read the books you will understand where I'm coming from....

With you on that, Boss.

Hammond dead, the opening sequence of Lost World (with an American family, as opposed to British)in THIS movie, Grant loving children, the inexplicable reversal in Lex and Tim, Gennaro NOT surviving in the movie--and being given Hammonds more evil traits, etc. etc.

@bosswalsh, I like the movie more than the book, lost world on the other hand the book is way better

Don't forget Grant turns around and goes right back into the island to try and stop the velociraptors from escaping. The marines show up and then the island is blown to hell. What a great ending!

T2 is still one of the best films of all time.
VIRILEMAN - 2/2/2013, 8:18 PM
Oh, and the movie mistake is like someone else already said. It's suppose to be a live feed yet it has a timer bar.
