Tom Savini & Other FX artists - Discussion

Tom Savini is an obvious legend in the field. But he rarely works anymore (on the FX side)

Do you think Gregory Nicotero has overtaken Tom Savini as the king of gore? Seems like every time someone needs any FX or monster creations, Greg is the go to guy. It's amazing how his work is in a ton of movies, and not just horror. From interviews, he seems like a great guy too. Unlike the stories that have been told about Tom Savini (at horror conventions)

Any up and comers in the field that are getting recognition? Not talking about horror directors, just the guys that handle the FX. Discuss your favorites. What guys you follow just because of their work, etc...

Like what the hell happened to Screaming Mad George?

There will always be a place for practical F/X guys/teams, but it would make sense that the little recognition "up and comers" get is due to how popular CGI has become.
