The Harryhausen Experience

Ray, me, and my autographed copy of Clash.

This man is so good he doesn't even have to look at the camera!

There are many perks that come from working at an animation studio! We, the people of Film Roman, just a few weeks ago, were fortunate enough to be graced by the presence of Mr. Ray Harryhausen, pioneer of the groundbreaking stop-motion and visual effects making their debut into the motion picture industry during the 1940s, 50s, and 60s. Some of Ray's works include The Seventh Voyage of Sinbad (1958), Jason and the Argonauts (1963), and the notorious Clash of the Titans (1981), to name a select few. Above are a couple snapshots taken in the glass conference room at Film Roman after Ray's presentation. With him is your humble narrator, in true animator fashion, looking as grizzled and fatigued as possible!
