While you might not know the name Greg Nicotero, you certainly know the man's body of work. Nicotero got his first job rather serendipitously, as Tom Savini's assistant on Romero's 'Day of the Dead' at the ripe old age of 22. Three short years later he co-founded KNB Efx Group alongside Robert Kurtzman and Howard Berger and has worked on well over 100 different films and TV shows including 'Evil Dead 2,' the 'Kill Bill' films and 'Sin City' to name just a few from his impressive and varied filmography. He's worked extensively with people like Tarantino, Rodriguez, Romero, Darabont and Spielberg. He is quite literally a legend in the makeup and special effects business. Recently, he wrote and directed a short film that takes a tongue-in-cheek look at the Universal monsters. It envisions the world of old Hollywood in a universe where the monsters are real and are managed by an agency just like any other actor or stuntman. The short, entitled Universal Monster Talent Agency, is structured partially as a newsreel and partially as an advertisement for the agency, its innovations and, of course, its monsters. It played at this year's Fantastic Fest and we had a chance to sit down with Nicotero to talk about it.
