Rest in peace Jim O Brien

Hey gang, just a quick note to say that Jim O' Brian the director of the very first episode of young Indiana jones passed away recently. I had the honour of knowing a working with Jim over the last few years and I'd just like to say what an insightful and humorous man he was.

I worked with Jim in his capacity as a tutor at the met film school, as an actor brought in to act for the directing students studying there I was basically a colleague of his, and witnessed first had his wisdom and joyful way of life.
He will be sorely missed.

Did you ever talk to him about his experience with George Lucas or Young Indiana Jones? Any good stories to share?

That's a shame, Jeremiah, but cool that you knew him. How old was he when he passed away?

Apparently, he did only the Egypt segment of "Curse of the Jackal" which must have been a fun adventure. Like Junior asked, do you have any stories?

No stories I'm afraid, I was a bit embarrased to ask actually, I'd working with him sporadically for maybe two years before I checked his CV. I didn't trust myself not to ask about that Detonator plunger! Wish I had now.

As for his age, not sure, the man was so frail he could have been any age from 60 to 85.
