Sorry for the lack of updates but I finally got the new layout together after some struggling. Didn't feel much like like adding to the site until I had a design I was happy with. I'll try to do better from now on.

I've started this website because I, like so many of you out there I think, love stop-motion animation. Then why didn't I make a page about Ray Harryhausen you might ask. The answer is simple. Phil Tippett was to me growing up what Harryhausen was to Phil Tippett. I fell in love with the art of stop-motion watching the Star Wars trilogy as a kid and was changed forever. I, of course, also love Ray Harryhausen's work but I didn't discover him until quite late. Had I lived in America I might have seen his movies sooner. So, basically it's Tippett's fault that I am the way I am. :)

Rod Bennett:
"I am deeply and madly and sentimentally in love with the stuff. I'm irrational about it. I like it when it's smooth (as it is in Danforth's When Dinosaurs Ruled the Earth and in practically all of Ray Harryhausen's work) and I like it when it's jerky (as it is in Danforth's Jack the Giant Killer and in practically all of Willis O'Brien's work). I like it when it adds to a good movie (as it does in King Kong) or when it's the only good thing in a bad movie (as it is in Flesh Gordon or Crater Lake Monster)."

Couldn't have said it better myself. ;)

Tippett Studio doesn't create stop-motion effects anymore but Phil Tippett is still the man I admired the most growing up. I wanted to be him. :) He still does great work, he's still the best even tho I don't feel quite as nostalgic about CGI. ;)

Basically I've made this site to amuse myself and also train myself in writing. I've never very good at that and I could use the practise. And what better way to learn things then to learn them while writing about your favorite things in the world: movies and special effects.
