Tom Savini, from Machete to Dragon*ConPosted in News on September 2nd, 2010
Last night I was fortunate enough to see the pre-screening of Roberto Rodriguez’s Machete, which was created from the the fake trailer featured in Rodriguez’s and Tarantino’s 2007, Grindhouse. Recurring in Roberto’s movies is actor and special effects master, Tom Savini. I was excited to see him playing Osiris Ampanpour, a bounty hunter, in this over the top gore-fest of a movie because I will see him in person this weekend at Dragon*Con.
We at the Dragon*Con Film festival are pleased to once again present him as a panelist at the year’s 2010 Dragon*Con Film Festival. A longtime guest and trouble maker at Dragon*Con, Mr. Savini will be joining us at the film Festival this Saturday September 4th at 2:30pm, with “An Hour with Tom Savini”. This panel has proven nothing but exciting in the past years at our festival.
Check out the rest of our Panel and Film School Seminars at the Dragon*Con Film Festival.
We’ll see you all starting tomorrow!
