Biography

Nicotero claims he began taking an interest in special effects after viewing the film Jaws, explaining that he kept thinking "how did they do that?". He also enjoyed The Exorcist, Planet of the Apes, Dawn of the Dead, and other Universal Studios horror movies. He began his career in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, learning the trade of special effects from Tom Savini, an award-winning special effects and makeup artist who worked with film director George A. Romero.

While working on the 1985 Romero film, Day of the Dead, he met Howard Berger, who would later become one of his partners at KNB EFX Group, a special effects studio which has gone on to work on over 400 film and television projects. It has won numerous awards, including an Emmy Award in 2001 for their work on the Sci Fi Channel miniseries Dune. In 2006, they were given an Academy Award for Achievement in Makeup for The Chronicles of Narnia: The Lion, the Witch, and the Wardrobe.
