Celebriel attended Ray Harryhausen’s sold-out presentation, book signing, and screening of The 7th Voyage of Sinbad Saturday night at the Rafael Film Center in San Rafael, CA. Harryhausen, an energetic, youthful and still traveling 85, was joined onstage by producer Arnold Kunert and “younger generation” special effects masters Phil Tippett (founder of Tippett Studio) and Craig Barron (founder of Matte World Digital). Both Tippett and Barron have special effects credits longer than several arms, having started “a long time ago” in the galaxy of Industrial Light & Magic. Sinbad is the film that inspired Tippett to enter the industry. [More]
