Richard Brooker In Memorium on Hell's Kitchen

Another great find from Brandon Middleton, this in memoriam at the end of Hell's Kitchen episode 7 from season 11 can be viewed here. Brooker was responsible for state-of-the-art remote cameras used in the show and I also believe he did directing on the show. Reglardless of what he has done, he was loved by the crew so much that they dedicated the show to him.

    Once again you're more then welcomed, Jack my good man! I only apologize that I forgot that you might be busy over those two days and I sent you two much during two of my off days in which I was here alone with no one. I wasn't thinking about or respecting your time & I truly apologize for that. In the future I'll ALWAYS be more respectful of that. I was simply thinking, old Aspie me, of the great finds that I found with searches & side-bars on YouTube and I got a bit too excited. My bad:)

    And yes may Mr. Brooker truly RIP. He was a unique performer to the franchise in that he was first "human Jason" after Steve Dash to truly scare me and to truly "own" the role as well as to don the iconic mask. He'll always & forever be remembered.

  2. It's terrific seeing Richard getting the recognition he deserves, even if it wasn't for his Jason role. he once had a website for his camera work and all of his credentials including his Emmy award for camera work.

    I agree with Torey up above. Though my time with him via Facebook (back when I had my account & he was still alive) was often limited & cold, it was nice to be able to chat with him albeit briefly with him and to get a few responses out of him. Too bad that I am a shy person with severe Asperger's Syndrome and I really never really feel like attending conventions.

    It would have been neat to meet him indeed and yeah, I've seen him Emmy awards photo. He look so dignified in that pic. :)
