The Golden Voyage of Ray HarryhausenLong before the days of CGI and motion capture, movie monsters were sculpted by hand and brought to life via stop-motion animation. One of the key innovators during this time was special effects maestro Ray Harryhausen, who created his own unique brand of stop-motion model animation called “Dynamation." The last of Harryhausen's feature credits was the 1981 fantasy classic Clash of the Titans, which inspired a 2010 remake starring Sam Worthington and Liam Neeson, the sequel to which—Wrath of the Titans—is out in theaters today. To celebrate the spirit of the pioneering Harryhausen (who turns 92 later this year), join us as we take a look back at some of his most notable creations.
