Brian Formo: The Film World Just Got a Little Less Beautiful
Huffington Post - over 4 years
For cinephiles with below-the-line awareness, yesterday was a very sad day with the passing of cinematographer Harris Savides. He was 55, with only 15 years of film credits, but his images will be revisited for ages. On Oct. 10, 2012, the film world got a little less beautiful.
Savides' longevity in pop culture will be remembered for his kinetic lensing of the iconic music videos made by Mark Romanek including "Closer" by Nine Inch Nails, "Criminal" by Fiona Apple, "Scream" by Michael Jackson and "Bedtime Stories" for Madonna. He also shot commercials for international filmmakers Wong Kar-Wai and John Hillcoat.
Due to his decades of work in commercials and music videos, it took until 1997 and David Fincher's paranoia yarn The Game to break him into cinematic work. His film credits included collaborations with some of the most acclaimed filmmakers working today, including multiple films directed by Fincher, Gus Van Sant, Sofia Coppola and Noah Baumbach.
