In fxpodcast #288, Cinefex creator Don Shay — who joined us on Episode 008 to talk about the life of stop-motion pioneer Willis O'Brien — announces his retirement, and his son, Gregg Shay, takes the reigns. Mike Seymour has a lovely chat with Don that I highly encourage you to give a listen.
I can’t begin to tell you how much joy Cinefex has given me over the years, and how much I appreciate all of the hard work Don put into it. It’s an amazing resource. On a personal level, Don has also been very supportive of The Optical podcast, and I must admit I certainly wouldn’t have so much to go on, looking back at these older VFX films, if it weren’t for him. I owe Don a great deal.
