DreamWorks Animation’s Executive Producer Scott Kreamer“Jurassic World: Camp Cretaceous: Season 2.”
Thank you Netflix, DreamWorks Animation and Scott Kreamer for your time, we absolutely love Jurassic World: Camp Cretaceous! We’ve binged watched the entire season 2, now we need season 3! I recently zoomed with Scott Kreamer and caught up on Jurassic World: Camp Cretaceous season 2. What a season, it’s filled with adventure, kids blossoming into their own and finding confidence within themselves and others.
Jurassic World: Camp Cretaceous focuses on a handful of teenagers who arrive at Jurassic World to take part in a summer camp program. These dynamic teens are soon left to fend for themselves in the park as it's overrun by the unleashed dinosaurs, this is when teamwork and ingenuity come into play!
Our story begins with the six characters, Darius, Brooklyn, Kenji, Yaz, Ben and Sammy, these teens have traveled to Isla Nublar for a summer at Camp Cretaceous summer camp and find themselves fighting for survival on the island after the Indominus Rex has gone rouge.
The campers have been through a lot, especially the heartbreaking loss of a friend. Now, in season 2 things are about to change. This is where our story begins and I’m not going to spoil it for you!
I sat down with Emmy-nominated executive producer of the highly-anticipated Netflix original series Jurassic World: Camp Cretaceous from DreamWorks Animation Scott Kreamer. Catch my entire interview above and here are a few Q & A that was asked that I thought was informative to share!
Q & A
Q: What was the initial inspiration for wanting to add an animated series to the franchise?
A: Initially the idea was: we’ve always seen the kids in these films as the side characters in desperate need of rescue by Dr. Grant or Owen Grady or another adult. The idea behind this is: what if we put those kids front and center with no one to rescue themselves but each other?
Q: Do you bring-in dino experts… to help you with all the details?
A: Early on, the very brilliant writers and myself and our story editor, we went down to the Museum of Natural History and poured over the dinosaurs. DreamWorks also brought in people from the Natural History Museum here in Los Angeles, and they were showing the different ways that [dinos] act and move. We’ve done a lot of research. And we did start with the Industrial Light & Magic models of the dinosaurs, but those are so vast and such big files, we had to simplify them to work in a television pipeline. At the end of the day, a lot of research has gone in… to get involved and look at these dinosaurs as animals and not monsters.
Q: Were there storylines, characters or any elements off-limits because of what’s happening with Jurassic World: Dominion, the new live-action movie?
SK: Another good thing to have Colin involved is that we were able to get a sneak preview of things that are happening in Dominion. There were certain things that we had in mind that were perhaps either stepping on something that was going to be coming, whether it was using a specific dinosaur or a specific storyline or specific characters. So yes, there were some constraints, but nothing crazy. We were able to pivot. But having Colin involved, who was writing the script for Dominion while we were producing this show, has been incredibly helpful.
