From This weekend fps (in conjunction with the Fantasia film festival) will be hosting the first in a series of presentations titled Animation Innovators. Our first guest will be stop-motion animation legend Ray Harryhausen, who will be discussing his life and work. There will also be a rare screening of a pristine print of Jason and the Argonauts, featuring the classic scene where Jason fights off an army of stop-mo skeletal warriors. To top it all off, there will be a post-screening autograph session. It's an entire afternoon of fun for a mere $9! [More]
