Ray Harryhausen RIP

08/05/2013
Ray Harryhausen. June 29th 1920 - May 7th 2013
Ray Harryhausen was the clay-model animator responsible for creating Dynamation, - the technique, not the word. This used Harryhausen designed models in stop-motion animation combined with live action footage.
He did make films that were all animation but what this escapist, fantasist, adventure story loving boy loved best were the live actor and animated model movies with heroes engaging with magic, mythology, monsters and the macabre.

History

23/03/2013
The past is not just for the aged reminiscing about the days  (following references meaningful only to older British citizens) when a ha'penny* was a twenty-fourth part of a shilling and would buy one an OXO cube to lick on the way to school.
