George Troester III's passion for special effects was first realized when he watched Evil Dead at the age of 15. Educated at the Art Institute of Pittsburgh, George specializes in prosthetics, puppets and fabrication. When he designs a character, he first compares the base of his design to existing similar designs, then does the opposite so he can create something completely original. George admires SFX artist Rob Bottin and compares him to Michelangelo and Leonardo da Vinci.
