Greg Funk - 1989 - Savini Studio

The Art Institute hired Greg Funk to teach us how to create special effects for movies. It was during his class that I created the foam latex red dragon head. He was so very passionate about what he was doing and we became friends outside of school. For a brief period of time, at the very beginning of my career, I partnered up with him and we worked a variety of special effect gigs together. The most important thing I learned from him wasn't any particular technique. His unyielding passion for his craft was what influenced me.
