Revealing the classic tricks and techniques of stop-motion model animation, this exciting documentation illustrates how cinematic monsters and fantastical creatures were brought to life in the days before the advent of computer-generated imagery. Focusing on the films and careers of revolutionaries in the field—including gothic visionary Tim Burton, legendary stop-motion animator Ray Harryhausen, Aaardman Animation of Wallace and Gromit and Chicken Run fame, and the groundbreaking 1933 version of King Kong—this fascinating study travels the animation time line, from The Lost World at the end of the silent film era, to the modern technological breakthroughs of Jurassic Park. Lavishly illustrated with stills—many of them from forgotten movies and never before published in book form—sketches and storyboards for projects, explanatory diagrams, rare photographs of animators and artists at work, and a host of other memorabilia, this comprehensive animation bible is essential for fans of film and anyone looking to embark on a creative career in cinematic animation.
L'autore: Ray Harryhausen is universally revered as the grandmaster of special effects in the pre-computer age. He received an honorary Oscar in 1992 and a star on the Hollywood walk of fame in 2003. Tony Dalton has known Ray for more than 30 years, having met him when he was first working at the British Film Institute. He was involved in the publicity for Star Wars, Towering Inferno, and The Omen, and now runs his own archive research company. Together they wrote Ray's autobiography, An Animated Life, and The Art of Ray Harryhausen.
