The Great Creature Maker is gone.


This is just breaking. AP hasn't even got it.
San Winston passed away of cancer yesterday.
The Geek wire is passing this news about.
Click Title to see him at the Gnomon workshop, either the day of or day before his death.

I saw this at work. Winston really had no peer. Practical effects just got that much more unlikely in genre films not that he is dead.

He will be sorely missed ...

Mr Goodson said...

NOW that he is dead.

I remember Bluesky parcelling out the foam models used in the Sega Genesis "Jurassic Park" game to distinguished team members--and didn't Doug take the Raptor for hisse'f?

Wait a minute, were those models from Winston...or Tippet??

Mr Goodson said...

Tippet. But Doug also got to visit the Winston studio and see the big animatronic dinos. Probably the height of jealousy in my life. So it was good. Everything got easier after I got that out of my system. After about 3 years.

OK, James, so I need an icon. Actually I rather like yours. It's kind of mysterious ...

How about if I copy it and just call myself the Invisible Woman?
