In Memoriam- Bingham Ray

Today some sad news as the champion of indie filmmaking Bingham Ray sadly died of a stroke at the age of 57 at this years Sundance Film Festival. He was known for his indie hits from his company October Films (which he helmed from 1991), such as "Breaking the Waters", "Secrets and Lies" and "The Apposite". Maybe you guys have heard of those films, or maybe you haven't but the point is I love indie films so I respect this guy for confounding an indie studio which has made these films and a lot more indie studios are now confident that they can make their indie films as good as October Films ones. So to Bingham Ray, very sad the way he went, thanks for showing the world that indie films can be great.
