Hillman passed away at home on April 18th at 6:03 pm in the presence of his loving wife, two children, his sister, sister in law and brother in law. He was 51 years old and died after a long and fiercely fought battle with colon cancer.
Hillman deeply loved his work, all of it — film directing, graphic design, all aspects of new media — and he especially loved his talented mentors, friends and students in these fields. His favorite topic was inspiration and he made sure to surround himself with it and find it in everything — his colleagues, his family, New York City, art, film and all of you.
He loved you all and took energy from those with whom he corresponded, exchanged ideas and with his fans.
Sweet Prince Hill, true gentleman, good dad and passionate artist, Rest in Peace.
Back in the early days of motion graphics on the web, Hillman was a great resource, friend and inspiration, sad to hear he’s left us all too soon – pt
