Dynamation no more

I am seeing reports that Ray Harryhausen has died.

If you don't know him, he made screen magic. He did it moving miniatures frame by frame, having only his memory to remember what he’d moved. His work was amazing. And you can trace a straight line from him to so many of today’s science fiction and fantasy films.

If you have never seen one of his movies, watch one this week. Open your eyes and rediscover the wonder of things that can’t possibly be real moving on the screen for you to see.
