'''Raymond Frederick "Ray" Harryhausen''' (June 29, 1920 May 7, 2013) was a visual effects pioneer and a genius in his field. Inspired by ''Film/KingKong1933'', he became the most prominent StopMotion animator in the film industry and worked on such classics as ''Film/JasonAndTheArgonauts'', ''Film/ClashOfTheTitans'', three ''Sinbad'' films (''Film/The7thVoyageOfSinbad'' , ''Film/TheGoldenVoyageOfSinbad'' and ''Film/SinbadAndTheEyeOfTheTiger''), as well as some of the most notable dinosaur films of the pre-''Franchise/JurassicPark'' era. Most of the settings in these films were made using matte painting.
