My next film was inspired by legendary animator Ray Harryhausen’s It Came From Beneath the Sea (1955). It’s about a giant octopus that destroys a city. Mine is the story of a mild mannered home owner who is attacked by a monster that bursts out of his kitchen sink. You won’t see the Golden Gate Bridge torn down in my film but it’s the spirit of the thing that counts. The reason I animate at all is because of the enormous impact the films of Ray Harryhausen had on me as a kid. It may have taken 40 years but I’m finally going to make a film that pays tribute to the man.
