CGI Guru Stan Winston Dies at 62

The man responsible for Aliens‘ aliens, Jurassic Park‘s dinosaurs, and Terminator 2: Judgement Day‘s deadly bots has died today at the age of 62, after seven years of suffering from multiple myeloma. Winston won four Oscars for his visual effects work, one for Aliens, two for Judgement Day and one for Jurassic Park.

“Stan contributed to some of the greatest — fantastic movie characters in motion picture history,” said friend and colleague, Phil Tippett, who shared a visual effects Oscar with Winston. “His loss is a great one and he will be missed.” [LA Times]
