RAY'S BIG DAYA Visual Effects Society Tribute to animation and visual effects pioneer, Mr. Ray Harryhausen
The Visual Effects Society assembled a number of video birthday tributes from notable animation and visual effects professionals from around the world in honor of Ray Harryhausen's 80th Birthday. Remarkably, Visual Effects Supervisor Steve Jaworski and myself were recruited by VES Founder Tom Atkins to "come up with a little video, of about :30 seconds" for Ray.
We showed up with our 2:30 min short a month later.
In describing the experience; unforgettable, affirming, and inspirational only scratches the surface of our evening with Ray among some of the greatest talents in the profession.
It was indeed an unforgettable evening.
