Presentation about Ray Harryhausen at UK Canterbury Anifest 2012

"Ray Harryhausen is known as the godfather of stop motion animation, having worked on classic films such as Jason and the Argonauts, Clash of the Titans and Sinbad. Ray Harryhausen stands as a beacon to today's fantasy filmmakers as the creator who inspired directors such as George Lucas, Peter Jackson and Steven Spielberg.

As Ray can no longer attend events, this talk will be given by Tony Dalton, curator of the Ray Harryhausen collection and co–author of Ray's books about his film work. Tony Dalton will be bringing a selection of Ray's models to the talk."

(The Marlowe Theatre, UK)

[At 19:00 the interviewer explains that Andrew Pienaar from Pixar describes his process of becoming 'creatively unstuck' as one where he refers to images that he has collected which he has stored in a drawer at Pixar. He explained that sometimes it's enough to just imagine the images in the collection for him to become 'unstuck'. Iain McCaig (19:45 – 20:45) builds on this by explaining that he understands the same process in terms of a metaphor of a library where the library is a 'resource in your mind' that you constantly keep referring and adding to –that you constantly keep re–reading.]
