Ray Harryhausen (1920 - 2013)

A giant of twentieth century popular culture.  The peculiar innocent joy and imagination of his effects sequences has never been diminished by the passing of time.  His stuff still feels realer to me than about 99.9% of cgi........because it was real.  You can't fool the eyes, but you can beguile them with lovingly crafted trickery.  RIP.
