Alec Mills BSC, GBCT behind the camera, then left to right: Simon Hume GBCT,Mike Frift GBCT and DoP Alan Hume BSC, GBCT MIKE FRIFT: 14 September 1941 to 25 June 2019 I am very sorry to have to tell you that Mike Frift died on Tuesday. I understand that this was (thankfully) peaceful and without pain. More information will follow as soon as it is known, but his family’s current plan is to have a quiet service and cremation close to where he lived. And, because there are so many people who would like to say ‘goodbye’, an event will be organised and run somewhere around here – date tba. Mike was a member of the GBCT and SOC. He worked his way up through the ranks from trainee to loader to focus puller to camera operator and to DoP (including 2nd Unit) and enjoyed being involved on all manner of well-known productions with a great many BSC and GBCT members including Alec Mills,Alan Hume and Robin Vidgeon.

Rest in peace, Mike – you are fondly remembered. (IMDB link:
