Behind the scenes photos, movie clips, stories and information on Visual Effects and Animation industry professionals from the 1960’s to the present…
I remember being fascinated by the films of Ray Harryhausen and Willis O’Brien as a young kid. Movies such as MIGHTY JOE YOUNG and THE SEVENTH VOYAGE OF SINBAD sparked an interest in animation and effects in me as well as many of my friends who you will see in this website.
Experimenting with film, stop motion animation and effects became a way of life for me on weekends during my first year in high school. I recruited my brother and neighborhood friends as actors and crew members. We made many animation related movies and tests and learned much through experience.
My big break came when I landed a job working and apprenticing under Gene Warren Sr., formally one of the partners of PROJECT UNLIMITED, INC. I could hardly believe that I would be working for Gene, one of the top masters in the business. Through Gene and others such as Tex Avery, I learned much about character animation via stop motion animation.
To make a long story short, after about 32 years of working in stop motion animation and traditional visual effects, I transitioned to computer graphics. Most of what you will see in this website will be photos of projects that I and others have been involved with since the early 60’s.
