Production designer David Wasco has earned substantial critical acclaim and shaped the look and feel of such major films as "Pulp Fiction" and "Rushmore." Born and raised in Vermont, Wasco first moved to New York City in 1972 to work as an industrial designer. A decade later, he earned his first screen credits assisting the production designer on the fantasy film "The Beastmaster" and as set designer on the immigrant drama "El Norte." His first production designer credit was in the mid-1980s for the drama "Smooth Talk," featuring Laura Dern as a sexually precocious teen. He continued to work steadily, eventually forming a team with his wife, set decorator Sally Reynolds-Wasco. The two collaborated on all of Quentin Tarantino's films, from the sparsely decorated warehouse of "Reservoir Dogs" to the period German sets of "Inglourious Basterds." They also applied their precise touch to such Wes Anderson films as "Bottle Rocket," "Rushmore," and "The Royal Tenenbaums." Other work they've done for directors known for their demanding visions includes "Collateral" for Michael Mann and "Heist" for David Mamet. Because of their architectural and design expertise, the Wascos have even collaborated on exhibits for the Los Angeles Museum of Contemporary Art as well as the Smithsonian.
