RAY HARRYHAUSEN al London Film Museum
Ray Harryhausen is joined by some famous faces for the opening of the
Myths & Legends Exhibition
On June 29th, the godfather of special effects, Ray Harryhausen, was honoured at the London Film Museum by opening an exhibition all about his life’s work.
Myths & Legends features original creatures from his films and shows people how he was inspired to create some of the most memorable moments in film history.
His process of using stop motion animation mixed with live action became known as Dynamation and made creatures such as Medusa, Gwangi and Bubo household names.
He was joined by some famous faces including John Landis, Peter Jackson, Terry Gilliam, Rick Baker, and Randall William Cook.
The pieces will be with the museum until June 2011 before finding a permanent home at the National Media Museum in Bradford.
