Legendary visual effects pioneer and stop-motion model animator Ray Harryhausen has died.

The multi-award winner was a major influence on many of the biggest film makers of today with the likes of Steven Spielberg, James Cameron, Peter Jackson, George Lucas and John Landis all citing his impact.

Over nearly five decades his work broke new ground and included such films as 1949's "Mighty Joe Young," 1955's "It Came from Beneath the Sea," 1958's "The 7th Voyage of Sinbad," 1963's "Jason and the Argonauts," 1966's "One Million Years BC," and 1981's "Clash of the Titans".
