It was a sad day when visual effects master Ray Harryhausen passed away. His work inspired so many generations of filmmakers and delighted millions of fans around the world. His vision and passion will be missed.
Fortunately, his vision will live on through his tremendous body of work. Speaking of that work and the amazing creatures Harryhausen created and brought to cinematic life, one enterprising YouTube user named Mat Bergman has put together a video highlighting each and every one of them.
That’s right, the video shows every one of Harryhausen’s amazing creations. It should also be noted that the Master didn’t work with a large team of people to create his vision. No, he manipulated each and every one of these creates himself, by hand, one small movement and one frame at a time.
Yeah, he was pretty bad ass. Check out the video after the break.
