MythBusters do more than explain how something may or may not be scientifically possible. Through trial and error they actually demonstrate it.
Ever since he was young, Tory Belleci knew he would work in the film industry. In 1994, after graduating from San Francisco State University's film school, he started working with Jamie Hyneman at a small production company. Tory worked as a stage manager, but quickly moved up the ranks.
A few years later Tory started work at Industrial Light and Magic, building models for films including Star Wars: Episode 1 - The Phantom Menace and Star Wars: Episode 2 - Attack of the Clones. Some of his models include the pod racers and Federation battleships. Tory worked for ILM for eight years as a model builder, sculptor and painter. Other movies that you can see his work in include Starship Troopers, Galaxy Quest, T3, The Matrix, The Matrix Reloaded and Van Helsing.
Tory has also written and directed his own short films, including the 1999 short Sand Trooper, which played at the Slamdance Film Festival and also aired on the Sci-Fi Channel.
Tory began work on Discovery Channel's MythBusters in 2003, doing work behind the scenes and in the second season was featured as part of the show's build team. Now he's on the front line, solving myths and starring in his own right alongside the hosts in Myth Busters series 6.
