The world has lost another talented filmmaker at a tragically young age.
Letters To Juliet/13 Going On 30 director Gary Winick has passed away at 49 years old, after a long battle with brain cancer.
Winick contributed to the film community for his directing & producing efforts, and for launching InDigEnt, an independent film company which was recognized for showing that "digital video production had the capacity to unlock new capacities within short- and low-budget shoots."
He also spent seven years teaching at New York University's Tisch School of the Arts.
Thanks for being such a positive contributor/mentor/innovator in the film community, Gary!
Our thoughts go out Winick's family, friends, former students, and peers during this difficult time.
