It is not often that we report on movie news, but the passing of special-effects expert Stan Winston is certainly worthy of remembrance. The award-wining film veteran and special-effects guru died today at the age of 62, after battling multiple myeloma, a plasma cell cancer, for seven years.
Winston was responsible for creating the special-effects, animatronics and creature costumes for countless memorable movies, including Alien, Predator, Terminator, Titanic and Jurassic Park. Over his 40-year career, he worked alongside such illustrious directors as Steven Spielberg, James Cameron and Tim Burton, as well as cult favourites like John Carpenter and Joe Dante. For a trip down memory lane, check out the following slideshow for some of Stan’s most enduring creations.
