Visual Effects Pioneer Petro Vlahos, Dies (Inventor of travelling matte system )

Quote:
"His scientific work with blue- and green-screen compositing systems can be seen in such classic films as “Ben-Hur,” “The Birds” and “Mary Poppins.”

Special effects inventor and engineer Petro Vlahos, whose industry contributions made possible such iconic film moments as Julie Andrews dancing with penguins in the 1964 classic Mary Poppins, died Sunday. He was 96.

A member of the Academy’s original Motion Picture Research Council, Vlahos was honored by the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences many times, starting with a Scientific and Technical Award in 1960 for a camera flicker indicating device. He earned an Oscar statuette in 1964 for color traveling matte composite cinematography and another in 1994 for the Ultimatte electronic blue-screen compositing process, the first of its kind. He received the Medal of Commendation in 1992 and the Gordon E. Sawyer Award, an Oscar statuette, in 1993.
Ultimatte announced the news of his death on Wednesday."
