This year, Phil Tippett introduced the world to his incredible invention, Mad God. Still, he has a lengthy history of contributing to some of the most iconic films of all time, including Star Wars, RoboCop, Starship Troopers, and Jurassic Park. When the film was first released in 1993, no one paid any attention to his role as “Dinosaur Supervisor” in the film’s credits. However, the advent of the internet has given him a newfound notoriety. Tippett has now spoken out against a persistent internet meme that distorts the facts about his involvement with the movie’s production to imply that he did a poor job.

In the cast of Tippett’s credit, the internet did outdo itself for many individuals with its comic twisting of things. With a screenshot of Tippett’s name and position as dinosaur supervisor from the film’s closing credits with the caption “One job, Phil. That was your only duty! The meme references Tippett’s title as a “supervisor,” implying that the dinos in the film would have been contained if he had done his job correctly. Tippett was asked about this in a recent Ask Me Anything (AMA) on Reddit, and he responded pretty bluntly.

 
Phil Tippett.
The joke was lost on me. It’s a dumb idea.

Although that joke has made people laugh for years, Tippett does not find it funny.

Why did it take Phil Tippett 30 years to create Mad God?
Tippett has stayed in the industry for decades thanks to his work on major Hollywood blockbusters like Howard the Duck, Return of the Jedi, and Evolution. Still, he also spent time between projects independently, bringing Mad God to life without the assistance of a major studio. In Tippett’s opinion, having a studio produce Mad God would have been impossible. Speaking to Movie Web, Tippett said that he could never pitch Mad God to a studio because he couldn’t even pitch it to himself, so he just tried his best to make it work.

A film like Mad God is so difficult to describe that it must be seen to be believed. Although it has been labelled as “horrifying,” “apocalyptic,” and “disturbing,” the film cannot be appropriately placed into any of these categories. Tippett’s magnum opus is a far cry from his work on blockbuster films like Jurassic Park and the Star Wars franchise, but there’s no other plausible explanation for the delay. Ultimately, though, Tippett’s work is nothing short of movie magic no matter which angle you look at it. Maybe it’s understandable that he doesn’t particularly care for the Jurassic Park meme.
