Julian Brits, Dredd fabricator, in memoriam
« on: 12 October, 2016, 07:26:15 pm »
Having been a few days, I thought I'd officially share the news here with you guys.

This last weekend a good friend of mine who was at the very heart of the Dredd fabrication team, tragically took his own life after battling depression. Julian Brits was a hard rocking, straight talking guy with a huge heart. He was always the life of the party and never failed to make you laugh. He was immensely talented and a genius who would make the most of the tools and materials available to make things happen. He will be sorely missed by all of us.

When I was in South Africa he, along with the rest of the CFX crew, was part of my family, as I was out there on my own.

The world has lost a truly unique individual and is poorer for it.

Very sad news and what a tragedy for his family and work colleagues. A very talented designer the world is indeed poorer for his loss.

Truly awful news Michael!

Please extend my sincere condoleces to his friends and family!

Dredd wouldn't of been the film it was without him, I'm sure!
