We all know who Tobey McGuire, Chris Evans and Robert Downey Jr are, but there are 100s of people that work on a movie production, before the first shot is even taken. Their job is to make sure those other guys look good by making sure the movie looks good. It’s a tall task and we rarely spotlight these guys.
I had the pleasure recently of meeting one of these individuals. He met Stan Lee when he was a young man and Stan was so impressed by him and his talent he hired him right away. He’s been working in the comic book industry since 1978 and the movie business since the 80’s.
I’m sure you don’t know the name Rusty Gilligan, but you should. The first major movie he worked on was Heavy Metal back in the 80s. But he has worked on such movies as Spider-Man 2 and 3, Captain America: The First Avenger and The Avengers. Some of the biggest and most loved movies of our generation. He's been a part of so many things you love, don't you tyhink you should get to know him?
He’s an amazing talent and a wonderful guy. I was so glad to get the honor of recently interviewing him for my podcast, super Hero Speak. So please take a moment to listen to Rust talk about his career and how he got to where he is today.
