Peter Ellenshaw, a skilled
matte painter and special
effects innovator has passed
away. He was 93 years old.

Some of the movies he
contributed to:
20,000 Leagues Under The Sea (1954)
Mary Poppins (1964)
The Black Hole (1979)

His son, credited in some
movies as "P.S. Ellenshaw"
(such as "Star Wars Episode
IV" (1977)) and later as
"Harrison Ellenshaw" (in
"Tron"(1982) for example)
www.imdb.com/name/nm0254001/
carries on the family tradition
of exceptional movie effects.

Matte painters are called
upon to expand horizons and
create settings when actual
locations fall short.

For some reason this family
is not being covered in the news,
perhaps being overshadowed by the
legendary Smiths and their eerie
Bahamian/Floridian freakshow.
