Back before I desired to produce feature length film, I wanted to be a paleontologist. I was young and impressionable (still am in a lot of regards) and had just finished watching the original Jurassic Park by Steven Spielberg. I doubt I ever made the differentiation between what Dr. Grant does in the first few minutes of that film (dusts off dead dinosaur bones) and what he does throughout the rest of the movie (survives on an island filled with real dinosaurs). That's not really important. What's important is a film actually inspired a kid to do something with his life.
