“True Blood’ is by far my favorite television project. I love the fact that the show’s mythology goes much deeper than just the relationships between humans and vampires. In the world of ‘True Blood,’ many races of magical creatures exist right under our noses. It is dark fantasy mixed with drama and humor … what’s not to love?”

“We are very fortunate to have the same core crew of artists for the show’s second season,” Rebert adds about his MastersFX team. “These guys have been with us for years and are the finest craftsmen I’ve ever worked with. We all look forward to the challenges ahead of us on a darker and scarier ‘True Blood’ season two.”
