Sorry, I have some bad news to report. I was informed this afternoon that veteran sound recordist and teacher Charles Blackwell was found dead in his hotel room in Singapore this morning. He was there on assignment teaching at the NYU Singapore film school. I don't have any more information at this time, but will update as it becomes available. Charles was also a dear friend and colleague. His last collaboration with me was on our short film "One People" where he did location sound. We, in the Black independent film community are deeply saddened at the loss of this great human being.
