As Hollywood continues to mourn for the late Tony Scott, who jumped from a bridge into the Los Angeles Harbour on August 19, his family have created a memorial scholarship to ensure his legacy continues long after his death.
Tony Scott, brother of 'Alien' director Sir Ridley Scott, was famed for propelling Tom Cruise into the dizzying heights of fame with 'Top Gun', as well as working with good friend Denzel Washington on no less than five films. The last collaboration between the pair, 2010's 'Unstoppable', also bears the tragic accolade of being the last film Tony Scott ever made.
The prolific British film maker died after jumping from a bridge last week, yet, for now, the reason behind his decision to end his life is yet to be confirmed. Coronary officials predict their investigation into his death will take several weeks but, for now, they are treating the case as a probably suicide.
Sadly for his loved ones, Scott's suicide note did not include a motive - although many are speculating that he was suffering from an incurable brain tumour - but it did leave them with a message of love.
In honour of his tireless efforts within the film industry, Tony Scott's family have created a memorial scholarship at the American Film Institute to help future film-makers and honour his creative legacy.
Long may the memory of Tony Scott live on.
