#Quote
1Linwood felt realistic effects, which have to blend perfectly, were the greatest challenge. Ironically, that work is often unsung, because it's your job to be invisible to the audience. That's the challenge I've always preferred-creating invisible art. It always comes back to that.
  • Regarding Barron's work and the inspiration he found in the effects
of Linwood Dunn, the opticals genius behind "King Kong" and "Citizen Kane."
