MTV Interview with Greg Nicotero: “Tarantino is an Old School Filmmaker.”


The MTV Movies Blog has posted a video interview with special effects artist Greg Nicotero. Nicotero has done special effects for Quentin Tarantino in the past (“I got to blow Marvin’s head off”), and is also known for his work on The Walking Dead. In the interview, he said this interesting tidbit about working with Quentin Tarantino:

Even if the “old school” ways don’t mean too much work for the effects team, Nicotero appreciates Tarantino’s style. “There are not a lot of special effects. It’s all about his actors and it’s so cinematic for him. We don’t shoot anything digital, he uses film, one camera, we don’t have five cameras shooting. That’s it,” he said. “It’s inspiring. It’s inspiring to think about the fact that that’s how movies were made for years and years and years, and I’m not saying that digital technology doesn’t have its positives, but I love that Quentin is old school.”
