As Jeremy Smith wrote on AICN:
On December 20, 2009, Paul Prischman lost his valiant two-year battle against brain cancer. He was a dedicated husband to his wife Cristin, a proud father of two wonderful daughters, and as loyal a friend as I’ll ever have. When Steve Weintraub and I launched Collider in the summer of 2005, Paul was constantly brainstorming ways he could help the site. In early 2006, he came through in a ridiculously big way with a special screening of the Director’s Cut of Ridley Scott’s Kingdom of Heaven (the DVD for which he’d worked on as an associate producer). Collider was barely a blip on the movie website radar at the time (high school kids with LiveJournals were kicking our ass in traffic), but there we were hosting an event at the Hollywood Arclight with Scott and screenwriter William Monahan in attendance. It was an early, critical boost for the site. It made us feel like we belonged. And it would’ve never happened were it not for Paul’s efforts.
After Paul became ill, a number of his friends formed Paul’s Brain Trust and it’s dedicated to helping out his wife and daughters. Since many of his friends work in Hollywood, they’ve donated some awesome props, original production artwork, signed DVD’s, books, posters, and they’ve even got screenwriter Hampton Fancher‘s original first draft of Blade Runner. They’re some incredible stuff and all the proceeds are going to a worthwhile cause. Hit the jump for more or click here to start bidding.
