Ray Harryhausen

I am a huge fan of Ray Harryhausen's special effects work, and apparently, he recently visited Industrial Light & Magic here in San Francisco. In the San Francisco Chronicle, one of his "disciples," Phil Tippett, was quoted as saying the following about stop-motion animation:

" 'It's just a very weird surrealistic kind of collage that has an aesthetic appeal to me,' Tippett says, moments after watching some of Harryhausen's animated skeletons. 'It has this weird, arcane, almost monk-like meditative state of mind that you get in where you close down time. It's a performance that starts here and ends there and lives in another time scale ultimately.' "

Neat.
