Rest In Peace Stan Winston

April 7, 1946 – June 15, 2008

A true cinematic god has left us !! It's a very sad day indeed !!! :(

Stan's IMDB page here some real classics he's worked on, Won 4 Oscars. Another 17 wins & 31 nominations.



For anyone who's never seen it The Winston Effect is a superb history of Stan Winston's work. An awesome book full of great pics of his studio etc...

Hey thanks for commenting - nice site, and yes - very sad about Stan.

on the other side of things, as far as The Incredible Hulk goes, I feel like the abomination died on its own... but who knows really

I got a real shock at the news, Stan really was the godfather of film effects. I've been in total awe of his work for about 30 years.

A truly great cinematic talent and one of those who created special effects that rivalled cgi in one important respect: they were achieved with humanity and were, in consequence, not just believable but also emotionally engaging...
