From his family:
Alan Faucher was a well-respected visual effects artist whose career spanned three decades and whose creativity was widely acknowledged by his professional community. His filmography includes visual effects work on numerous acclaimed feature films such as Star Trek: Nemesis; Brother Where Art Thou?; Independence Day; Batman Forever and many other Hollywood blockbusters. Among his many achievements, Alan and his visual effects colleagues were nominated for the 2012 Visual Effect Awards for work on the Oscar-winning film Hugo. In May of 2013, Alan was diagnosed with a rare form of leukemia and began a grueling treatment regime which included chemotherapy, blood transfusions hospital stays, a bone marrow transplant as well as enduring long periods of medical isolation. Alan maintained his good spirits, courage, and humor. Despite his steadfast determination, Alan succumbed to his cancer on January 9, 2014. The purpose of this memorial fund is to help pay down the enormous medical expenses incurred during Alan’s treatment and to help his family get back on their feet again financially. Your support would be a blessing! If you prefer, donations can also be made at any Bank of America to the Alan Faucher Memorial Fund. Again, thank you!
