Alex Benjamin

This project is the brainchild of Alex, greatly inspired by a childhood favorite of his, Walking with Dinosaurs. Alex has edited several videos, including three fan-films based on the Godzilla franchise that he's posted on his channel G&G-Fan, taken multiple film and biology classes in school, and has contributed tremendously to the scripts and story for the series, as well as bringing the whole team together.

Jonathan Chen

Jonathan wrote a substantial amount of the scripts for two episodes and continues to help tremendously with writing as well as organizing the project. His areas of expertise include avian and non-avian theropods, sauropods, and conodonts. Currently, he is engaged in research on conodont evolution with a professor at the University of Iowa. Additionally, his essays on paleontology have won a Gold Key and an American Voices nomination at the Scholastic Writing Contest.
