Last week news came through that Ryan Nicholson, founder of Plotdigger Films, was seriously ill.
Ryan is one of my favourite film-makers and the news of this deeply saddened me, his movies introduced into a world of film that I thought was long gone and he helped me recapture that passion for it.
“Gutterballs” is not just my favourite of his films, it’s one of my all time favourites and my signed copy of it hangs proudly on the wall in my home for all to see.
For those of us who have interacted with him, either in person or online, you will know that he is such a great and genuine guy that truly loves what he does.
I’d like to invite you all over to the “Get Well Ryan, We Need You!” group (HERE) where you can leave a comment to help lift his spirits. You can also head on over to the Indiegogo page (HERE) to help contribute anything you can to help.
Personally I’d just like to say that if you’re reading this Ryan I hope you get better real soon dude, the world still needs your creativity!
