Ray Harryhausen Animation

We've all come to expect our sci-fi movies to have dazzling, computer-animated special effects. However, science fiction movies have been around since long before computer animation. Stop motion animation was one way of creating special effects in those days, and Ray Harryhausen is a legend in the field. During his career, he created everything from dinosaurs to flying saucers to a giant, six-armed (due to budget constraints) octopus.


Ray Harryhausen is a legend! Stop-motion creators owe everything to his groundbreaking efforts. They made some great toys of some of his more popular figures a few years ago - you can still get them!
