Interview w/ Riz Ahmed aka Rizmeister General:
We’ve heard camels are difficult to work with…
Yeah. Actually, camels are a lot like cats.
What do you mean?
They’re like a dopey version of a big cat. You build this relationship with them, and you start to think they’re your mate, but secretly they’re just in it for the food and they don’t like you at all. When you realise that they’re not in it for the love, it’s depressing. They’ve been looking down at you the whole time. And, also, it’s mad how they sound — camels, not cats. They sound like you’d imagine a dinosaur would.
Raaaaarrrr. I think that’s actually how Steven Spielberg filmed Jurassic Park— he just dressed a bunch of camels up as dinosaurs.
