Episode 162 – Interview with Special Effects Artist Ed Martinez

Crystal Cleveland and Chad Hunt are unable to join the Grue-Crew for this episode so Bill Mulligan and Jeff Mohr get special effects artist Ed Martinez all to themselves. Martinez was so informative as our guest for episode 159 about The Dead Pit, they invited him back to discuss some of the rest of his career as a special effects artist spanning the years 1989 to 2015. Yeah, they know dang near all of that time falls outside the 1980s, but that’s just shows how much they dig special effects and Ed Martinez! 

Martinez openly discusses the beginnings of his love for the art and craft of special effects and the path leading to his first film industry job as the director of special effects on The Dead Pit. He shares stories of his work and relationships during that 25-year career, being quick to give credit to those with whom he worked. In terms of actors, Martinez helped create the special effects magic on films starring Jeremy Slate, David Naughton, Terry O'Quinn, Brigitte Nielsen, Richard Moll, Joe Estevez, Todd Bridges, and Eric Roberts to name a few.

There are a few stories from the making of The Dead Pit that they didn’t have time for in episode 159, so Martinez starts with those and moves on to discuss his experiences working on the following films:
