Emeryville, Calif. based Ex’pression College for Digital Arts will host an afternoon with stop-motion animation legend Ray Harryhausen on April 27 at 3 p.m. The father of modern visual effects will be on hand to answer questions about his career and sign copies of his new book.
Published by Billboard, Ray Harryhausen: An Animated Life is a heavily illustrated guide to the life work of the man behind the fantastic images from Jason and the Argonauts, The Seventh Voyage of Sinbad, The Beast from 20,000 Fathoms, Mysterious Island, Clash of the Titans and many other indelible fantasy film classics.
In 2002, Harryhausen visited Ex’pression to cut the ribbon on the computer animation classroom suite that was named in his honor. This latest appearance is just one of many stops in the promotional tour for the book.
The presentation and book signing are free and open to the public but space is limited. RSVP by e-mail to [email protected] Ex’pression is located at 6601 Shellmound St. in Emeryville, Calif., just across the Bay Bridge from San Francisco. For more information, visit www.expression.edu
