We in the camera movement community lost a good friend this week. Joe Cuzan, who was a tech for Cinemoves, was killed on Friday while working on his truck. I first met Joey in 2003 on Big Fish. He was a big, smiling man who was quick with a joke and never got frustrated or angry. I remember on that job we were pulling a 50' Technocrane through mounds of sawdust at the circus set at wrap, trying to get it to the trailer. It was about 5 am and we were tired and ready to get back to our hotel rooms.. At about a hundred feet from the trailer the steering handle sheared off, making a long night even longer. Joe didn't curse or get upset (unlike me). He calmly got down under the base and figured out how to fix it. That's how he was. He knew there were more important things than this business. I just happened to see him Thursday night on a job after not seeing him for a year or so. He shook my hand and gave me a big hug with that smile he always had. We later made a joke about a PA telling him where to stick his paperwork. At the end of the night I shook his hand, said "Thanks Joey," and left. The next night we learned that he had left us. He was a good dude. Those of us lucky enough to have worked with him will miss him. Scott Howell and the whole Cinemoves family has stepped up to help support his children, Sebastian and Isabella. A fund has been set up in Joe's name at http://www.gofundme.com/joe_cuzan.
Please give if you can.
Joey, "Fancypants," I'll miss your smiling face buddy. See you down the road.

I'm sorry to hear that. I didn't know your friend, but I too have lost too many good people I met and got to know while suffering in the trenches together in this crazy business. The bad news always comes as a shock -- a body blow, really -- and although time eventually allows us to get around such tragedies, we never really get "over" them. It's life, that's all -- and sometimes life really hurts.
So sorry to hear that D. Its always a shock to lose one of your colleagues.
My thoughts are with his family and friends.
Thanks old buddy.
