  • torybelleciGot this book when I was a kid & I'm still getting ideas from it. One of the most influential fx books out there. Thanks @thetomsavini for being so generous. #grandeillusions

  • redmodeldesignI found that book at my local public library when I was 11 years old way back in 1988. I knew then and there that I wanted to make stuff for the movies. His closing statement in the book about the limitations of time sent chills up my 11 year old spine. Thanks for posting.
  • jaxhagsTom Savini is awesome! I always loved his work. Then I got the chance to drive him to the airport as a PA, still one of my favorite work experiences.
  • zimmermadeOmg that book was at my library and I used to secretly look at it and it would scare the crap out of me - I was like 10 and my mom would never let me check it out because I'd have nightmares - which I did anyways from looking at it. Blast from the past!

  • omundson@torybelleci That's awesome.
  • gadgetsfxYeah! Mr. Savini was here in Barcelona (Spain) in the cinema festival in Sitges with his great documentary "Smoke and mirrors" and I had my Grande Illusions copy signed! ;-)
