These movies have been a part of everyone's lives, the world over, but not everyone is familiar with the Academy Award winning team that was involved with the special effects for all of these, and so many other incredible movies.
Alec Gillis and Tom Woodruff, Jr. built their carriers as master special effects men, from the ground up, working for such legends as Roger Corman, and onto the master of special effects Stan Winston. Later they started their own practical effects studio, Amalgamated Dynamics Inc. or as it's more commonly known, Studio ADI.
After building a tremendous fan following, by posting behind the scenes You Tube videos, from the many hit movies they've worked on, (which you can watch by clicking HERE) Tom and Alec have decided to enter a new chapter in their careers, as producers and directors.
Alec Gillis has just successfully funded his first Kickstarter for the sci-fi/horror film Harbinger Down, which he will direct and will star film icon, Lance Henriksen.
Tom Woodfuff, Jr. has just been announced as the director of the new demon noir fantasy thriller, Fire City: The Interpreter of Signs, which has a Kickstarter going on, right now.
