Another Hollywood legend has left this world. Special-effects guru Stan Winston has passed away at the age of 62. The cause of death has not been released yet, but according to reports, Winston died on Sunday in Los Angeles.
Winston revolutionized the special-effects in film, designing effects on such iconic films as The Terminator, Aliens, Predator, Terminator 2: Judgement Day, Jurassic Park and most recently with Iron Man, just to name a select few.
Winston was also said to be working on Jurassic Park IV and Terminator Salvation: The Future Begins at the time of his death. Winston had won three Oscars for visual effects over his career, and was nominated for six other statuettes. He was only the second visual effects artist ever to receive a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame.
Here is the very last video interview that we conducted with Stan. This was recorded in August of 2007, right before the release of Winston's werewolf project Skinwalkers. He talks about bringing the project to life, as well as working with practical effects versus CGI. The man was a legend in the film business, and his magic will continue to live on.
