In Memoriam 2013 – Part 2

Shortly after I posted an In Memoriam 2013 a few weeks ago, I realized that I had not included all the people that I should have listed.  Below I’ve listed other talented people we lost this past year.  Some you might remember very well.  Others you may never have heard of.  But I do hope you take the opportunity to check out some of their films or TV series or maybe music CDs – and discovered why they counted among those whose talents we’ll miss.

Special Mention
Ray Harryhausen – As a child in 1933, Harryhausen saw King Kong and found his life’s work.  While King Kong used stop-motion photography and miniatures to create the special effects, Harryhausen took the ideas further and created movie magic in the films The Beast from 20,000 FathomsMighty Joe Young, The 7th Voyage of Sinbad, and Clash of the Titans.
