Colleagues, actors, actresses, and friends from the film and television community have shown their support for filmmaker Mark Milsome who died filming a car stunt in Ghana on the 18th of November 2017.
Wearing their Mark Milsome Foundation black t-shirts, they have come out in support of “Black-T-Week” where they will honor Mark on the first anniversary of his death by wearing a Black Foundation T-shirt during the week of 18th – 24th November.
Stars have been posting pics of themselves wearing the T-shirts including Eddie Redmayne, Keanu Reeves, Robert De Niro, Felicity Jones, JJ Abrams, Martin Freeman, Ed Westwick, the Downton Abbey Cast, and Kevin Bacon to name a few.
The foundation have asked colleagues and friends to post pictures on social media with the following hashtags: #BlackTWeek #MarkMilsomeFoundation #BeMoreMark
The Mission Statement on the Official Mark Milsome website reads:

“As a charitable organisation we will encourage and support young people who we believe display the qualities needed to thrive in the British Film and Television industry. The foundation will look for evidence of genuine passion and a strong work ethic from applicants before considering anyone to be deserving of support or scholarships in Mark’s name.”
“With a focus on gaining access to the Film and Television industry either from obscurity or from a recognised educational programme, the foundation will help successful applicants overcome the challenges of finding work experience, mentorship and eventual employment in an industry that is traditionally difficult to access without the benefit of insider contacts.”
“As an organisation we are open to exploring other areas including health and safety and to evolve in any way that best serves the scholars, the Film and Television Industry and the memory of Mark Milsome.”
We wish the foundation all the best and you can support the charity by purchasing your very own T-shirt here:
