I was bummed to hear the news that Lamont Bentley died last night in a car accident.

We weren't friends or anything, but I worked as the boom-op on Shards, an AFI short in which he starred. He was a professional, and a good actor. He gave me a helluva workout with a long monologue in which he never stopped moving (a scene we shot in the old Red Car electrical sub-station), going for it full bore, take after take in that sweltering, piss-smelling dungeon. I respected that.

Ironically, he was returning from a screening of the movie when he died.

He was 31, and he leaves behind two daughters.
