Oscar-winning special effects gnome Greg Nicotero and his partners have worked on more than 400 TV and film projects, from George A. Romero's "Day of the Dead" in 1985 to last year's Quentin Tarantino splatter-fest "The Hateful Eight".Best known these days for his effects work and directing on "The Walking Dead," Nicotero's obsession with the macabre began back in 1975 with "Jaws". Nicotero grew up in Pittsburgh, where the legendary Romero and his special effects supremo Tom Savini were busy redefining the horror genre, starting with 1978's "Dawn of the Dead".After a chance meeting in Rome, Nicotero became friends with Romero and quit premed to manage the makeup effects department on zombie flick "Day of the Dead".
