Andy Schoneberg was born on July 17, 1956 in Casper, Wyoming, USA as Andrew John Schoneberg. He is known for his special effects work on Terminator 2: Judgment Day (1991), Jurassic Park (1993) and Inglourious Basterds (2009).
What if the movie monsters of yesteryear weren't make-ups, but real semi-trained creatures brought in to be filmed?" That's the concept of Greg Nicotero's 2010 short film United Monster Talent Agency, which debuted at Fantastic Fest and is now online. Andy was one of the special effects artists on board and played the part of Zaius during the credit scene at the end.
"It went beyond the classic Universal Monsters as well. King Kong, Nosferatu, an ape from Planet of the Apes, JAWS (the film that inspired Greg to get in the biz BTW) and even Freddy's glove all made appearances, in cheeky and wink-wink manners. The cherry on top was the quip heavy narration which would often play on words having to to with the monsters showcased onscreen. Add to that groovy sight gags throughout, a slew of genre friendly cameos (Frank Darabont, Robert Rodriguez, the lovely Cerina Vincent, Jeffery Combs and more!) obviously having a hoot doing the film and Nicotero showcasing a firm hand and a keen eye behind the camera and you get a slick 8 minutes of horror loving. My only complaint? It was too damn short. Give us a feature version!" --
