The FEATURE-LENGTH Dinosaur Hunter
10 March 2004 | by (Edmonton, Alberta) – See all my reviews

I'm not sure how the titles got confused, but I see there is a review of this title, but it's not for this film.

The Dinosaur Hunter is NOT an educational video in a museum--it is an award-winning feature length movie that was nominated (amongst other brilliant work from around the world), for Best Movie at the prestigious Banff Television Festival. For those Canadians who have a national insecurity complex, the Banff Festival is regarded as one of the important in the industry world-wide. Other winners in various categories have included FRASIER, NYPD BLUE as well as many other prominent international productions.

I know all of this because I was the network executive in charge of the project. In the end, it is a family movie and is not designed to appeal outside of that demographic. But as a movie for kids, I have to say it was one of the projects I was most proud of during my tenure. Testing demonstrated that, to most of its audience, the film is exciting--filled with the sorts of activities that kids dream of doing.

Rick Stevenson is a talented director and Edwina Follows did a wonderful job of adapting the book by Pam Conrad. The production team that worked with them also did fine work.

Of course, my opinion is merely that, and since I chose to invest in the film through my office, it's obvious that I saw value in it. But since Banff did too, I feel very genuinely that the film is worth a look for families looking for quality viewing.
