RIP Robert B. Oliver

Bob Oliver was one of the few people who believed in me as a filmmaker. As a Kickstarter supporter and producer on Vendetta Games, he did more to support the production than I was willing to ask for. I loved being on set with him and on my later film, The Saxophonist. My condolences to his family at this difficult time. https://everloved.com/life-of/robert-oliver/?flow=201
