I first saw Ray's amazing work when i was 2, watching "The 7th Voyage of Sinbad" on a theater screen in San Diego, California in 1958 with my mother....i was terrified by those monsters, by his cyclop and dragon as they fought on Colossa Island....and ive never forgotten those spectacular sights from my earliest memories....

Many years later, at age 35 i had the pleasure of finally meeting him in 1991 at the golden Apple comic book store in West Los Angeles, where he was autographing items for fans and promoting the first VHS video documentary on him, "Aliens, Dragons, Monsters and Me". I was so glad he was now admired by so many new young fans !....

But despite all the negative falsehoods continually perpetuated by many stop-motion and RH fans about modern CGI effects, Ray never dismissed it, and always acknowledged and respected it's evolving capabilities....

And not only is CGI the direct descendant of Ray's work, it is also the logical and rightful successor to stop-motion in dramatic live-action films, making possible the amazing characters and creatures in "Jurassic Park", "Avatar" and other modern movies....astonishingly life-like moving images absolutely not possible with even the best stop-motion....

Ray was not the cinema "wizard" or "magician" or FX "god" or other silly titles some have given him, but simply an ordinary man with an extraordinary and unique cinematic vision and talent, and Ray's fantastic and unique monsters and dinosaurs from that Mysterious Land Beyond are now timeless, and will always still amaze and entertain us, forever....and for that, we will always thank you, and remember you, Ray !

Ray was a dear friend for more than 40 years. He and I, along with his close friend Ray Bradbury, shared many wonderful times together. I will miss him forever.
