Source: ComingSoon.net June 16, 2008
Special effects and makeup guru Stan Winston passed away on Sunday, June 15th in Los Angeles, California. He was 62. Winston died at home Sunday evening after a seven-year struggle with multiple myeloma.
Winston was best known for his work for the "Terminator," "Jurassic Park" and "Predator" series, and Edward Scissorhands. The 4-time Oscar winner most recently worked on Iron Man and was special effects supervisor on the upcoming Terminator Salvation: The Future Begins.
Winston won Oscars for Aliens (1986), Terminator 2: Judgment Day (1992) and Jurassic Park (1993).
This royally sucks. The man was a brillaint special effects wizard. It's going to be a very different industry without his contribution. Let's hope that his team continues to honor the high standards that Stan Winston lived up to.
