Who is Ray Harryhausen?

Ray Harryhausen was born June 29, 1920 in Los Angeles, CA and is an American Film Producer. He is more commonly referred to as "the father of stop-motion animation". He has designed some of the most memorable creatures ever seen on film. Most notably known for his work in movies like The Beast from 20,000 Fathoms, The Seventh Voyage of Sinbad, Earth vs. the Flying Saucers, Jason and the Argonauts, First Men in the Moon, Clash of the Titans and many, many more.

Unusal Fact: Harryhausen worked alone on his stop-motion animation sequences, sometimes shooting no more than 13-14 frames of film per day. Because of this, project completion could take upwards of 2 years.
