The Passing of director Kim Manners....

| 1 Comment | No TrackBacks
Sad new today, director Kim Manners passed away after a fight with cancer.

Kim had a passion for this series that really endeared him to the fans.

While it's trite to say this, life is very precious indeed, and it's moments like this that reminds everyone to make the most of every day. Certainly, Kim was a great example of someone who seemed to live life to the fullest, who brought a cheer and a great deal of humor to the crews who worked with him. I can only base that on all of the behind the scenes clips I've seen, but that's the impression I was always left with.

Kim was one of the favorite directors of the fans and crew, he directed such great episodes as Die Hand Die Verletzt, Humbug, Apocrypha, Home, Tunguska, Redux II, Patient X, Dreamland, The Sixth Extinction, Closure, Without, Existence, The Truth

Please pass long your prayers and thoughts to his family.

Furthermore, the Inspired by Gillian team has created a fund in memory of Mr. Manners  that will be collected and donated to the American Lung Association.
