gary winick passes away

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.

    Just because he directed some films does not mean he is a 'talented filmmaker'. His movies are crappy at best. Remember Bride Wars! Maybe he watched Anne Hathaway last night at the Oscars and die of embarrassment.

    well it's just a damn shame that someone has to die fighting cancer at such a young age when some asshole douchbag like Charlie Sheen just pisses away his life of fortune and fame and literally, senselessly and without regard for the sanctity of life, kills himself before millions.

    Cancer is so sad, yet still, not to be mean, but brain cancer does kind of explain how any brain could think his movies were worth adding to the art world
