Ray Harryhausen : An Animated Life In Dynamation

RAY HARRYHAUSEN : 1920 – 2013

“People ask me if I would have used computer graphics today. I may have, I don’t know. There’s a lot of technology now that allows you to view instantly the film you’ve just shot. But I never cared what I had done, I only cared where I was going.”

His Creature List In Chronological Order

Ray Harryhausen was a master in the art of animation, sculpture, design, optical effects and directing, to give life to his creatures  interacting with the scenery and real actors.

This is Dynamation featurette

My first memory of his art is his latest film, with Bubo, a mechanical owl- my favorite character of the movie. I grew up with his bestiary which feeds my imagination. By joining the legend of cinema, he gave us all a fantastic collection of ever living creatures : grimacing giants, dinosaurs scared, little funny monsters and Titans always moving.
