True Blood’s Masters FX Effects

November 29, 2009 by  

Sookie-InjuredWe have seen True Blood‘s special effects and somehow we now have an idea on how True Blood vampires would die if you staked them.  The Twilight Saga, New Moon, hired the same company that True Blood uses to do their special effects. That company is none other than the 22-year-old Los Angeles-based company – Masters FX.

Masters FX is owned by Todd Masters, a graduate of Sammamish High School. Masters is a drop-out of Seattle’s Cornish School of Arts after attending for just a day when he was 18. But this did not impede his dreams and look at where he is at the moment. His company is credited for the contributions to films like Predator, Mortal Kombat, Nightmare on Elm Street and the t.v. show Fringe. The company’s latest assignment was Twilight Saga’s New Moon. Among his company’s contribution to New Moon were the wounds, scars, tattoos of the Quileute characters and the very sparkly vampire death.

But Masters is not into the sparkly death of vampires He said,

“We’re not really into the whole sparkly vampire thing. Vampires don’t sparkle.”

However, Masters FX worked their expertise in the third installment in the franchise, “The Twilight Saga: Eclipse,” which is due out in June.   If he doesn’t like the sparkly deaths of Twilight vampires, perhaps he loves True Blood vampires‘ messy death.
