Did You Know?
I'm another snowball. Willis H. O'Brien
started the snowball, then I picked it up, then ILM [Industrial Light & Magic] picked it up and now the computer generation is picking it up. Where it will end, I don't know. Maybe in holography, although I'm not sure I'd like a grotesque monster appearing in 3-D in my living room.
'Jason and the Argonauts' was Ray's favourite of the 13 films that he worked on and while not doing too well at the box office outside Britain it's now considered to be a classic.
Famous for his imaginative stop-motion special effects which are showcased in fantasy films depicting Greek Mythological and Arabian Nights stories.
