Today, legendary visual effects artists Ray Harryhausen passed away. His revolutionary work in special effects shaped the Hollywood blockbuster, and we wouldn’t have movies like Star Wars, Jurassic Park, or Coraline without him.
I’ve always been a huge fan of Harryhausen’s, and I really wanted to meet him at a convention someday. He lived a long and happy life, and died surrounded by his family.
He was 92 years old, and in this world of soulless CGI, he will be greatly missed.
