... The name Ray Harryhausen may not be familiar to everyone but to those who do know it, his name stands as a landmark in the history of a genre and cinematic art, the art of dimensional stop-motion animation. Ray made his name by developing fantastic stories and creatures based on legends and mythology and creating a unique genre of fantasy films during the 1950s, 60s and 70s that took the movie making world, and the public, by storm.
Ray Harryhausen stands as a beacon to today’s fantasy filmmakers as the creator who inspired them and made the impossible possible.
Ray Harryhausen (born Raymond Frederick Harryhausen on June 29, 1920 in Los Angeles, California) is an American film producer and a special effects creator most famous for his brand of stop-motion model animation. Some of his most notable works have included his animation on Mighty Joe Young (with pioneer Willis O'Brien, which won the Academy Award for special effects) (1949), The 7th Voyage of Sinbad (his first color film) and Jason and the Argonauts, featuring a famous sword fight against seven skeleton warriors.
If you don't know who Mr. Harryhausen is, I'm pretty sure that at one time or another you probably have seen one of his movies. Here you can find some of Ray Harrymhausen's masterpieces of stop-motion model animation.
Thanks to all the contributors from this site for uploading these films so that I could make a compilation of the genious and mastery of Ray Harryhausen.
“When presenting Harryhausen with a special Academy Award, actor Tom Hanks told Harryhausen “Lots of people say Casablanca or Citizen Kane is the greatest film of all time… no way, it’s Jason and the Argonauts!””
I hope that you enjoy these movies as well as I have over the years.
Thanks and ENJOY.
