Mark Valentine (aka h2orat), former Video/Media supervisor at PWE and foundry Author has passed away.
Mark was responsible for some great trailer videos for Star Trek Online particularly, created the spotlit foundry mission The Rising Pheonix and was all around a good guy.
Mark had to take leave for treatment when he was diagnosed with cancer. The cancer had spread but now seemed under control and things were improving. Unfortunately you cannot take anything for granted with cancer and he died.
My thoughts and prayers go to his family and friends through this time and I am sure he will be missed at Cryptic and at Perfect World.
Mark was a great guy, and talented videographer. He was our first dev guest on PrimetimeUGC. I'll never forget how generous he was with his time, and how helpful and informative he was. We talked for hours and we, at StarbaseUGC, were happy just to get to know him. He will be sorely missed.
