Rest in Peace Ray Harryhausen, 1920-2013

This wasn’t from my generation, but I loved it every time it showed up on WLVI’s Creature Double Feature.

My son, even having grown up in an era of computer generated effects, actually loves when conventional effects are used.  He just finished a stop-motion film making class for kids, and he’s enjoyed watching this as well.  Ray was a genius who’s impact on film is immeasurable, and he will be missed.

I’m very happy that so many young fans have told me that my films have changed their lives. That’s a great compliment. It means I did more than just make entertaining films. I actually touched people’s lives — and, I hope, changed them for the better.
