Ray Harryhausen heroes and legends

The other day I posted about some artists that inspired me.  I wanted to post about a major influence on me who probably will not be  a big influence on future generations directly although he should be.  Unfortunnately I believe the films of the great Ray Harryhausen and his FX will be too dated and “hokey” for them. 

The mythological tales and fantasy tales featuring his stop motion fx were brillant.  I was fasinated as a child and still am now.  I have everything he did.  As a teen I did some stop motion on 8mm film and then as a young adult with a videocamera.  Then I moved into 3d animation.  I give alot of credit to  Ray Harryhausen for that.   Harryhausen put  heart and soul into his work and it shows.  That is something many of todays CG artist should do.
