Evan Boucher was a graduate student working at the laboratory of Dr. Ken Lacovara at Drexel University.

The video did two big things. First, it showed how the new types of imaging being used to study fossils can show scientists how dinosaurs moved and behaved. Second, it got Evan his dream job - the folks at DreamWorks studios saw the video and hired Evan as an animator! This is an HD video, so check it out Full Screen.
