Planet of Dinosaurs (Also known as Dinossauros: Planet of dinosaurs) is a 1978 science fiction film. Set in an unspecified future, the film follows the journey of Captain Lee Norsyth and his crew after they crash land on a planet with similar life conditions as Earth, but millions of years behind in time. Encountering a wide variety of dangerous dinosaurs, the crew decides that its best chance for survival lies on finding higher ground and setting up a defensive perimeter on a higher plateau to for refuge to wait for when or if their rescuers arrive. They soon encounter a deadly Tyrannosaurus and must figure out a way to defeat the creature and survive on the planet.
With teams of musicians, sound effects designers and actors, Filmusik creates the live soundtrack for a classic film at the Hollywood Theatre. Every roar, whistle and arpeggio is created onstage by the performers in this unique concert of the movie arts.
An original score written by local Jazz renegades, The Blue Cranes, sets a new mood for the 1978 science-fiction film. The stop-motion dinosaurs are given character by Filmusik's own Foley artists who use an arsenal of noise props to create the sounds in the film. A troupe of local voice over artists dub the film live from the original script, matching the hapless space-travelers who crash land on a prehistoric planet.
From the pit under the screen, the work of many artists goes into the final canvas of sound for this 70′s creature feature. It's a special concert that gives a behind the screen look at the art that goes into the sound for movies.
