Film community mourns passing of producer Mark Norris; worked with Commission

Mark Norris, one of the founders of the local independent production company Old School Pictures, died of natural causes Sunday night at the age of 29. Many of Old School's projects were assisted by the Memphis & Shelby County Film and Television Commission. The most recent project was the well-received "Daylight Fades" vampire movie that premiered last year.

John Beifuss has written about Mark in The Commercial Appeal here.

The loss of this respected member of the local filmmaking community is keenly felt, and we send our condolences to Mark's family and all those associated with Old School.
