In June, Jurassic World opened to the highest grossing weekend in history at $209 million dollars. As of today, in both domestic and foreign sales, the film has grossed $1.6 billion dollars. Jurassic World's actual budget was $150 million. And to create the world of Jurassic World hundreds of Visual Effects artists were involved. Lighters, Animators, and Compositors to name a few. Overseeing the pipeline of this machine are Production Coordinators, Managers, and Supervisors. Woojo Jeon is one of the Production Managers who saw to completion the creation of Jurassic World. Woojo is from South Korea and never planned on working in Visual Effects. Heck, she had never even planned on working in film. It all started in 2003 when, barely speaking a lick of English, she decided to travel to Canada. The plan? Study English for six months and return to Korea, but this never happened.
