Described as one of the most influential people in cinema, Ray Harryhausen’s films have inspired generations of filmmakers, animators, writers, and artists, to push the boundaries of their own creations. He is not only remembered for his iconic style of animation and his unique approach on set, but his humility and willingness to share his passion with a new generation. In this film we speak to those who knew him, who worked alongside him, and those who were inspired by his work, to find out more about the grandfather of stop-motion animation.
