by Marc Halperin

Ray Harryhausen is a national treasure with his groundbreaking work with stop motion animation he has changed the world of filmmaking. He has inspired everyone working in special effects today and his pioneering work ushered in the world of digital effects. It is only fitting that the Academy present this special summer tribute to him as Ray was responsible for so many summer blockbuster movies. Virtually every director born in the 1950's or 60's working in science fiction or fantasy owes their love for the genres to this man. He was honored by the Seattle Film Festival on May 30, 2003 with a Tribute and received a special Academy Award in 1992.
