Artbooks and DVDs: "Ray Harryhausen: Special Effects Titan" Docmentary
I'm a HUGE fan of Ray Harryhausen and the amazing stop-motion work he has done in some of my favorite films, Clash of the Titans, Jason and the Argonauts and on and on! Back in the 70's and 80's Ray Harryhausen was a one man WETA, Industrial Light and Magic special effects workshop!
His amazing stop-motion special effects were so heartwarming and horrifying. For me as a kid he made the 80's a special place, a fun world I could escape into! This is why I was so thrilled when I saw on one of my favorite websites (www.StrangeKidsClub.com) the announcement that Arrow Films has created a wonderful documentary about his super special career and all the artists and movie makers he has effected "Ray Harryhausen: Special Effects Titan".
Not yet released in the United States, I'm eagerly awaiting news on the Official "Ray Harryhausen : Special Effects Titan" Facebook Page. In the meantime we can all check out the AWESOME trailer!
