Stan Winston Passes Away

June 16, 2008

Like so many people responsible for what we see on-screen at the movies, Stan Winston wasn’t exactly a household name, although to movie FX fans, he certainly was well-known and, by many, revered.

Stan Winston passed away today after a long battle with multiple myeloma.

He was a special effects and makeup artist who worked on some incredibly notable films, such as both Terminator & Terminator 2, Predator, Jurassic Park and Edward Scissorhands, to name a few.

Winston was also one of the founders of the FX house Digital Domain.
