Before the movie industry went all CGI computer animation, this was one of the Stop Motion tests done by Tippett Studio (back around 1992) for the original Jurassic Park film. Steven Spielberg was going to use state-of-the-art Stop Motion, but later changed his mind and went with computer CGI dinosaurs for JP.
The news media & public wrongly judge old Stop Motion from 40 years ago and compare it to current CGI animation. Public does not know the potential of modern Stop Motion for Harryhausen'esque style creature special effects work. As you can see, sophisticated stop motion does have a different, more tactile, flavor. Not photo-real exact, but maybe surreal-real compared to the typical hyper fluid, air-brushy CGI creature effects works. ------------------------ This animation walk cycle was looped to slightly lengthen the test. That's why you will see an occasional cyclical jerk as it loops
