I'm sorry to report the passing of Dell Hake. Dell was currently EIS's most ardent supporter and helper to anyone and everyone. Dell was the only person Spud trusted to extend the course and was the author of the post graduate course. His credits are numerous and he touched many of Hollywoods best. I studied some of the post graduate course with Dell and he was as gentle a human being as i have met. I have limited conducting skills but what I know Dell taught me. This is a huge loss for the EIS family. Thoughts go out to the Hake family.
