Death of a Great
I just read very sad news the movie fx/monster maker Stan Winston has passed away, losing a battle with cancer. This really hit me. I've admired his work for so long, especially one that I believed to be one of the best movie creatures ever created, the Predator from the whole Predator franchise. His company was responsible for endless movie creations from Edward Scissorhands, Jurassic Park, Terminator, and recently Iron Man and Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull. It was one of my goals to perhaps work with him one day, but that dream can no longer be realized unfortunately. I have no doubt though of the continuing quality of work from Stan Winston Studios.
