This is THE definitive documentary about iconic dream/nightmare-maker Ray Harryhausen. Aside from interviews with the great man himself, shot over five years, there are also interviews and tributes from Peter Jackson, Nick Park, Phil Tippet, Peter Lord, Terry Gilliam, Dennis Muren, Rick Baker, John Landis, Ken Ralston, Guillermo Del Toro, Jean-Pierre Jeunet, Robert Zemeckis, James Cameron, Steven Spielberg and many more.

For the first time, Ray and the Foundation provided unprecedented access to film all aspects of the collection including models, artwork and miniatures as well as Ray’s private study, where he designed most of his creations, and his workshop where he built them. Never before has so much visual material been used in any previous documentary about this god among men and monsters.
