Mel Gibson has paid tribute to his Apocalypto production designer Thomas E. Sanders after learning of his death.
The Oscar-nominated art director lost his battle with cancer on 6 July (17), aged 63.
The former furniture designer, who also worked with directors like Steven Spielberg and Francis Ford Coppola, was twice nominated for Oscars - for his work on Spielberg's Saving Private Ryan and Coppola's Bram Stoker's Dracula.
He was production designer on Gibson’s Apocalypto. “The film world has lost an extraordinary artist,” Gibson told Deadline. “He was my friend, my collaborator and I will miss him.”
Sanders worked twice for filmmaker Randall Wallace, on the Mel Gibson-starring We Were Soldiers and on Secretariat. Sanders started his career in film in 1990.
Sanders is survived by wife Mariana and five children, one sister and seven grandchildren. There will be a celebration of life memorial on Saturday, July 22 at the Paso Robles Inn on 1103 Spring Street from 10:30 AM to 2 PM.
