- Wednesday 26 January 2022, 6-7pm
The last of our four exclusive live-streamed interactive events in which Hollywood insiders and celebrity super-fans delve into the magical world of Ray Harryhausen.
In this event, the writers Jeremy Dyson and Mark Gatiss will reveal their passion for ‘the godfather of stop-motion animation’. They will talk about some of their favourite Harryhausen films, and explain his influence upon their own careers.
Both Jeremy and Mark were mesmerised by Harryhausen’s iconic animated scenes during their childhoods. So much so that, throughout their careers, they have acknowledged Harryhausen as a major influence on their approach to film-making. A notable example of this is the stop-motion sequence in The League of Gentlemen Apocalypse feature film.
This event will be chaired by writer and podcaster, Becky Darke.
