Clash Of The Titans, The Kraken

Clash Of The Titans (1981)
"We gave him four arms to make him different! Again, it’s to do something you couldn’t do with an actor. Anything can have two arms, but people would think it was a man in a suit. I detest that! I always worked alone: I did all my own animation, and the sets and the lighting. But on Clash Of The Titans I did have to bring in other animators, because I had a technical problem and got behind schedule. I haven’t seen the recent Clash of the Titans. We did it our way and somebody else did it their way. They wanted to use my name, but I didn’t want to get involved."


Ray Harryhausen: Special Effects Titan is in cinemas now.

I grew up with all the films Ray Harryhausen worked on and they fuelled my fantasies and ambitions. Sadly, I failed to follow in his footsteps, but I've managed to get most of the movies on DVD, and they still entertain and enthral. Maybe it's just a personal thing, but even with the marvels made possible by CGI seem unable to aspire to the same special magic. I think it may have something to do with this observation by the man himself: "I tried to improve on it, but I still admire King Kong because it influenced me enormously. There wasn’t a single superfluous scene in the dialogue or the visuals." More

L: Empire Admin Post your comments on <a href=/features/harryhausen-on-harryhausen><b>t his article</b></a> Ok First thing I saw when I opened up the article is the skeleton figurine and damn I remember that thing. I can't remember what movie though, sinbad maybe or clash of the titans. When you take a look at some of the following pictures you can see it's from the argonauts, I remember that movie with silly nostalgia. That guy really is an artist. More
