Stan Winston Has Passed Away

Sad news today – Stan Winston, known as a special effects wizard but was a man who had much more influence than a mere effects-man-for-hire, has passed away.

It is impossible to talk about special effects in the movies without addressing the work of Stan Winston, who worked on the “Terminator” films (including the theme park attraction), “Artificial Intelligence”, “Edward Scissorhands”, the “Jurassic Park” films “Iron Man”, “Aliens”, and even the infamous “Star Wars Holiday Special”.

He had been ill for quite some time, but still involved in some major upcoming projects.
