"Music videos are so stylistic. It’s about the beauty of the image- it’s like a commercial. Features are the opposite of that. If you do that in a feature, you’re actually downplaying what’s important- the story- and taking away from it." — Harris Savides, DP
Word is spreading that the great cinematopgrapher Harris Savides passed away yesterday...

- R.E.M. "Everybody Hurts" (Jake Scott, dir.)
- Nine Inch Nails "Closer" (Mark Romanek, dir.)
- Fiona Apple "Criminal" (Mark Romanek, dir.)
- Madonna "Rain" (Mark Romanek, dir.)
