Ray Harryhausen lecture With skeleton & Middlesbrough tower

Ray Harryhausen has passed away.

Cinema is almost always about making the impossible or imaginary appear as though real. The stop motion genius Ray Harryhausen was a peerless master of this magic. And while he made the astonishing appear believable, he did it without dimming the astonishment. I love no filmmaker’s work more than I love his.

Here is one of the very few greatest scenes in the entire history of cinema. It’s literally awesome, marvellous, fantastic and wondrous.

Thanks, Mr. Harryhausen.

What we do now digitally with computers, Ray did digitally long before but without computers. Only with his digits. – Terry Gilliam.
