News has come that Loren Savitsky, who essentially was a one-man swing gang for the production of "5", was killed in a motorcycle accident on September 4th.
Loren, was a one time student at Brooks Institute's School of Film and was brought in to join our little crew on "5". He spent most of his time with Rich, Wex, and the rest of the grip/electric/camera folks - but, even at his young age, he was a consumate professional: prepared, timely, eager to get the job done. As a director, what more could you ask for?
For those on the crew who had the chance to know Loren, or just those who've heard of him though "5", it is asked that you add your blessings to his spirit as he passes on and give your light, love, and compassion to his family in their moment of need.
Farewell, Loren. Peace be yours.
Born: 19??, Wisconsin, U.S.A.
Died: 9/4/2009, Los Angeles, California, U.S.A.
