My bad for slightly missing King Kong‘s ‘birthday by a week. On April 7th, 1933, visual effects wizard Willis O’Brien crafted scenes in King Kong using a technique call stop-motion. This transformed a 18-inch gorilla doll into a terrorizing monster that climb the Empire State Building and swat airplanes.

Decades later, stop-motion animation still goes strong for those who don’t have multi-million dollar budget. And entertaining master pieces such as the one above still surprises us.

Techniques are never lost… just re-invented. That’s my take.
