Thierry Pathe truly understood the 'nuts and bolts' of filmmaking, from technical to business. Although it has been a few years since his passing, we'd like to pay a short tribute to an excellent educator who was always available to provide advice and guidance.

“Cameraman, filmmaker and educator Thierry Pathe, a grandson of film pioneer Charles Pathe, died Saturday, April 6 (2002), in New York City of cancer. He was 61.

Remembered as a charismatic and inspiring teacher and mentor to numerous now-established auteurs(including Martin Scorsese, Angelina Jolie, Ethan and Joel Cohen and Susan Seidelman) he taught the nuts and bolts of filmmaking to hundreds of students in the Department of Film, Video and Broadcasting at NYU’s School of Continuing Education (recently renamed the School of Continuing and Professional Studies) from 1971 to 2000.

In addition, he served as the department’s film coordinator for the better part of three decades and established links between NYU and the city’s labs and equipment houses.

After leaving NYU, he worked for L’Orage, where he was cinematographer, lighting and directing consultant for ‘Growing Down in Brooklyn’, starring Tina Louise, which appeared on U.S. TV. He also produced ‘Hooch’ with Danny Aiello and Gil Gerard.

He previously was d.p. on ‘The Cauldron’ with Boris Karloff and Viveca Lindfors as well as the ‘Batman’ TV series.

Additionally he directed commercials for Rolex.

Two films he produced and/or directed - but which were never released - were ‘The Young and the Dead’ and ‘Toot Suite’.

He trained as a cameraman in the U.S. Air Force before branching out into nearly all the technical aspects of film and television production.

Born Thierry Charles Franc in Laval, France, he was brought to New York. A naturalized U.S. citizen, he adopted the surname of his maternal grandfather as an adult.

He is survived by a son and a half sister.”
