Tory Belleci net worth and wages: Tory Belleci is an American filmmaker and model maker that has a net worth of $2 million dollars. He’s famous for his work on the Discovery Channel show, MythBusters. Belleci continues to be working with fire and explosives for a long time. At a very young age, his dad showed him how to produce a Molotov cocktail and he afterwards built what was basically a homemade flamethrower. When he was 19, he was almost arrested for setting off a house made pipe bomb near his parents’ house in Seaside, California, and after being found, the policeman supported youthful Belleci to look for a means of expressing his love for explosions and special effects which failed to include getting detained. In 1994, after graduating from San Francisco State University’s film school, he began working with Jamie Hyneman at M5 Industries. Belleci was employed as a stage manager, running errands and cleaning the store, but started earning a name for himself. Several years after, he began work at Industrial Light and Magic (ILM) and ended up staying together with the firm for eight years as a model builder, sculptor, and painter. In 2014, Tory competed with notable Electronic Dance Music Producer and DJ, Deadmau5 (Joel Zimmerman), in the Gumball 3000 race.

When I was in high school I did a report on movie special effects and in a book I saw a picture of the Millennium Falcon in front of a bluescreen at ILM. I thought to myself, 'I want to do that someday.' It wasn't until the Episode I issue of Cinefex came out, and I found a picture of me standing by the Federation battleship in front of a bluescreen, that I remembered that childhood dream.
