My newest interview subject, John Bruno, is an accomplished visual effects artist. He’s helped to create some of the most memorable images of the last few decades of blockbuster cinema in projects ranging from Ghostbusters and the first two Poltergeist films to Terminator 2: Judgment Day and Batman Returns to Avatar and the Twilight films. He’s even won an Oscar, taking home the Best Visual Effects Oscar for The Abyss. I spoke to John Bruno recently about his long and diverse career, and we put this together over the course of two phone calls. I hope you all enjoy getting to know this amazing talent.
In his long career as a writer and director, Tom Holland has managed to create visions that have haunted the nightmares of generations, especially Generations X and Y, who became familiar with him through movies like Class Of 1984, for which he wrote the screenplay, and Fright Night and Child’s Play, which he wrote and directed. He’s busy to this day with his website Tom Holland’s Terror Time, as well as a new movie in development, Cessation, and several documentaries. Mr. Holland was kind enough to take some time out of his busy schedule to speak to me, though, and I hope you all enjoy my conversation with this master of horror.
