RIP Hillman Curtis

I was first introduced to Hillman Curtis 10 years ago. A friend and I became absorbed in nascent Flash design and a book Hillman had authored on the subject became the trusty handbook for us boy scouts. Flash forward to August of last year and I found myself lensing a project he was directing; I was excited. I got to spend some time with him at his home in Carol Gardens. We watched low budget music videos, talked about his wild plans to build a crows nest on his roof and played with his kids. He was a good dad. Rest in Peace Hillman.

Drew Innis

A New Englander through and through, Drew grew up in Connecticut / New Hampshire and got over educated in Boston. He also lived on a beach in Southern California for some years. Film, photography, music and literature monopolize his time these days. Drew lives in Brooklyn, NY, eats too many cheeseburgers at the Commodore and hopes to carry on simply one day on a big piece of land by the sea without the computer or YouTube.
