I found it really interesting, 11 December 2005
Author: Peter Lakin ( from South Wales, UK

The making of walking with dinosaurs was interesting because - I liked the way you came up with the "walk" for Ornithocherus; the "hop" made me laugh, because it was so unusual!! I still wonder how they came up with a colour scheme for the dinosaurs, and I liked the "weight-gaining" part of the process, because the skeletal structure changed into the final image of the dinosaur itself. Although the images were so obviously computer-created, that did not detract from the enjoyment and fascination of the concept. Kenneth Branagh's voice-over (as always) contributed to the overall attraction, and increased the "compulsive viewing" of the whole production.
