SIGGRAPH Stop-Motion Screening

This hasn't been made as an official announcement yet, but I can't contain myself, so...the local Vancouver SIGGRAPH Chapter is planning a series of screenings in late January/early February of influential Visual Effects films. I tried helping them arrange the possibility of flying Ray Harryhausen out as a special guest, but that idea doesn't appear to have materialized. Nevertheless, on January 31, they want to do a stop-motion night and screen the original King Kong along with a new print of Jason and the Argonauts. I've been invited to introduce the films, so naturally I'm rather honored and excited! Should be a fantastic night.
