RIP Stan Winston

Special Effects master, Stan Winston passed away after “a seven year struggle with multiple Myeloma“. You may have never heard of him before but you probably have seen many of his work. Remember that T-Rex that chased Jeff Goldblum in Jurassic Park? Or that indestructible metallic skeleton of the Terminator? None of those would be possible without this man, the legendary Stan Winston.

The thing about most of his special effects is that they never get old. Just watch movies like Jurassic Park or Terminator 2 and you will be surprised that the effects are still good. And those movies were made more than ten years ago!!
