Ray Harryhausen: Special Effects Titan Trailer

Ray Harryhausen – the only special effects artists ever to be the most important name in the credits of a film. Jason And The Argonauts is a Ray Harryahusen film, not a (director) Don Chaffey film, or a (star) Todd Armstrong film. And, crucial though their contributions were you wouldn’t say “Rob Bottin’s The Thing” or “Dennis Muren’s Jurassic Park”. And this great little documentary film explains why…

Ray Harryhausen: Special Effects Titan is released in selected cinemas from this Friday 9 November. If you have any love of the art of old-fashioned, pre-digital filmmaking, it’s well worth a watch.
