The movie world lost a wonderful cinematic eye this past week with the death of Cinematographer Harris Savides on October 9 and many have paid tribute to him over the past couple of days, but the best to come yet has arrived in the form of the following video retrospective by Nelson Carvajal over at indieWire.
A collection of clips from the films he worked on intercut with some interview snippets, Nelson has included scenes from films such as Ridley Scott‘s American Gangster, David Fincher‘s Zodiac and The Game, Gus Van Sant‘s Milk and Elephant, Sofia Coppola‘s Somwhere, Jonathan Glazer‘s Birth and Greenberg and Margot at the Wedding from Noah Baumbach.
You have not seen the last of Savides’ work on the big screen as he did shoot The Bling Ring for Sofia Coppola, which will be hitting theaters next year. But for now, give the video below a watch and enjoy what he already brought us.
In addition, Savides shot the music video’s for Madonna’s “Rain” and Fiona Apple’s “Criminal” among others, but I’ve included these two examples below.
