Ray Harryhausen Quotes

13 Ray Harryhausen quotes:

"I took courses at USC in film editing and art direction and photography when I was still in high school."
"So our films had a lot more to them than entertainment value, and I'm glad that a lot of people recognize that now. People realize now the value of them as educational."
"I know pretty well in the broad sense what I'm going to do, because I have to know that when we shoot the live-action, so that it'll synchronize. Then I know pretty well when I get to the animation stage, what that scene requires."
"I was never restricted. I was never told what to do."
"Many times I felt like I'd do better than what the director did, but some of them got a little discouraged because they didn't have full charge of making the film, and sometimes there'd be battles of egos."
"I was very limited in what I could do with flying saucers, because they're just a metal disc. I had to try and put character in as if they were intelligently guided."
"That's why I never became a director. I never had patience with people."
"I brought in the stories many times. I don't just do animation."
