Skeletons. Jason. Fight!

May 19, 2012

Liveforfilms are doing a series of ‘Best Fight Scenes‘ which are interesting to watch.  However I thought I’d single one out for additional praise.  It’s the celebrated Jason & The Argonauts scene with the skeletons.  The animation is by Ray Harryhausen and it is an amazing scene.  Even in the age of digital 3D animation the craft and verve of the action still shine.  I saw Ray speak at a Watershed event a few years back – the room was packed and when he came to the podium he got a huge round of applause that went on and on…  It was a great talk too!
