I’m so so heartbroken.
Henry @hpmedia30 was a good guy, a good friend of mine. Great personality.
Known him for about 10yrs, from Camera assistant, to Director of photography, to Executive producer.
Just when he settled down with a good wife and started producing his own films and making it big, death struck.
What can I say?
God knows best.
Rest well in the bossom of the Lord.
