Cinematographer Eduardo Serra will serve as Director of Photography on the upcoming Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows, as announced by film lighting company Panalux. Update: You can see the Panalux announcement here in our image galleries. Mr. Serra recently shot the acclaimed films "Defiance" with Daniel Craig and Jamie Bell, "Blood Diamond" with Leonardo DiCaprio, and was nominated for an Oscar Award for his cinematography on the film "Girl with a Pearl Earring." Please note: While this does seem official, we are trying to obtain confirmation from Warner Brothers, and will update with that when we can.

Principal photography is set to begin next week on the two part production of Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows in London, England.

Thanks much Matt!

Ooo if they do go with him, then it does look like the DH films will be action-orientated…not to mention beautifully and atmospherically shot

I was hoping they would get Bruno Delbonnel back. That guy knows ART!

Yeah, I might rent some of his movies too! Cinematography in the Harry Potter movies is one of the little details I’m really interested at.

If that is true, then great!! he’s an excellent director and he’s portuguese like me!! :P But like it was said before here, it will probably be more action-orientated…

Needless to say, I just hope that he continues the tradition of excellent cinematography that has characterized this series. :)

They’re going to start shooting next week!!! Squeeeeeeeee!
And he really is an awesome cinematographer, so the movie should be beautifully shot, with an eye to atmosphere and action, combined.

Cool! But I hope they manage to combine the emotional parts and the action parts into the movie, and not just focus on the action. :)

This is definitely going to be something else visually than the last films. I feel we’re going to get a much more gritty looking film (well, two actually) if Serras previous work is any indication. I’m not complaining though, it would fit the tone of the story.

He sounds like a good choice, I’ve never seen any of his previous work, but it sounds like he’s very good, and suits the job.
