In memoriam: Bob Crowe of Bamboo Shoots

We, The Flying Stars documentary team, are saddened to hear about the passing of Mr. Bob Crowe. Bob was a producer at Bamboo Shoots, a film and TV production company in Saskatchewan, and a few years ago he reached out to us after we submitted an application to one of his company’s funds. We didn’t win this particular competition, but Bob was impressed enough with our film that he picked up the phone and offered to help hand.

It’s tough making any movie, particularly a documentary, so that gesture meant a lot to us. Bob was patient and understanding and reliable. He helped many filmmakers besides us fulfill their visions. That’s something special in this world.

The Flying StarsĀ team, Allan Tong and Ngardy Conteh George express our deep condolences to Bob’s family.
