RIP Ray Harryhausen

by Tony Dayoub

"I'm another snowball. Willis H. O'Brien started the snowball. Then I picked it up. Then ILM picked it up. And now the computer generation is picking it up. Where it will end, I don't know... maybe in holography. Although I'm not sure I'd like a grotesque monster appearing in 3D in my living room."
-Stop motion model animator Ray Harryhausen,
whose name became synonymous with motion picture visual effects
