Ray Harryhausen: Special Effects Titan (8 PM, Sony Movie Channel)-US

"This is the definitive documentary about Ray Harryhausen. Aside from interviews with the great man himself, shot over five years, there are also interviews and tributes from James Cameron, Steven Spielberg, Peter Jackson, Nick Park, Phil Tippett, Terry Gilliam, Dennis Muren, John Landis, Ken Ralston, Joe Dante, Randy Cook, Guillermo Del Toro, Steve Johnson, John Lasseter and many more. For the first time Ray have provided unprecedented access to film all aspects of his collection including models, artwork and miniatures as well as Ray's private study, where he designed most of his creations, and his workshop where he built them. In addition the documentary will use unseen footage of tests and experiments. Never before has so much visual material been used in any previous documentary about Ray. This definitive production will not only display a huge part of the unique collection but will illustrate the influence that Ray's work has had on film makers during the past fifty or so years."

Yes, this is a very nice video about Ray and his contributions.

Check out the cautionary remarks by Steven Spielberg regarding the current state and future of CG in film.

There's also a BAFTA tribute to RH on his 90th birthday. Many of the same people in the Titan documentary as well as George Lucas(its strange that he wouldnt be in this documentary when Spielberg is since Lucas has far more of a RH influence in his films than Spielberg does--who preferred puppets to animated characters) and other people who worked on his films..
