General info :
Tom Woodruff Jr. (born January 21, 1959, Williamsport, Pennsylvania, USA) is a special effects artist who has worked on every Alien and Alien vs. Predator film from Aliens onwards.
Tom made his move to Los Angeles in 1982. After a year of working with small make-up effects houses, Tom joined Stan Winston's team on Terminator.
That was the beginning of a five-year period that saw Tom become a key coordinator under Winston, with the opportunity to work on such features as Aliens and Predator as well as TV shows such as Amazing Stories.
In 1988 Tom Woodruff Jr., together with Alec Gillis, founded Amalgamated Dynamics, Inc. (ADI), an American special effects company specialized in animatronics and prosthetic make-up, headquartered in Chatsworth, California.
Together they created their own Youtube channel, studioADI, to reach out to their fans as well as fans of the physical world of monsters, creatures, and aliens.
Woodruff was nominated for an Academy Award for Visual Effects in Alien3 (an award he later won for Death Becomes Her).
