This clip was shot in London at BAFTA’s recent Ray Harryhausen tribute where Peter Jackson presented an amateur childhood movie he made recreating Harryhausen’s famed Cyclops scene from The Seventh Voyage of Sinbad. (Note that, at the beginning, the teenaged Jackson hadn’t yet figured out how to matte in the battling skeletons.)

And an exhibition of Harryhausen’s work will be on display at the museum through August 22nd:
