"Whoa!" was all I could say when I walked intoThe Fantastical Worlds of Ray Harryhausen exhibit at the Academy of Motion Pictures Arts and Sciences. One of my earliest recollections of his work is watching a Jason and the Argonauts and The 7th Voyage of Sinbad double feature with my Dad at the pre-revival Vista Theatre. I have been fascinated with his work ever since.

Harryhausen's
incredible stop-motion animation and special effects set the bar so high, I don't think his work has been bested. Sure, we now have massive computer rendering farms and texture mapping so detailed you can see pores on blue skin. However, there is something special about watching real objects in motion that pixels on a screen have yet to capture.

From the exhibition website: "Harryhausen classics take viewers to magical worlds of fantasy and adventure, with dynamic action sequences (which he executed largely by himself) populated by pre-historic beasts, aliens, giant sea creatures and mythological monsters.

With unprecedented cooperation from, and access to, the Ray Harryhausen collection, an incredible array of original models, drawings, storyboards and behind-the-scenes photographs are on view in the Academy’s Fourth Floor Gallery, demonstrating the ingenious filmmaking process of Harryhausen."
