Berton worked on the the visual effects teams for both Jurassic Park and Terminator 2: Judgment Day (the face-morphing effect? That's all Berton). Both movies receive sequels this summer - Jurassic World (Berton saw it the night before he was interviewed last week) and Terminator: Genisys, in theaters Wednesday. (In addition, he's worked on everything from The Mummy to Charlotte's Web to a 1997 rerelease of Star Wars.)
Berton talked to The Inquirer about why these sequels are coming out now, and about being "spellbound in the darkness."
