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!

Excuse me for being “out of the loop”, but WHO??? I, like many others here, have never seen any of this work…but he sounds like he’s a good choice! We’ll see…

I enjoyed Blood Diamonds a lot, but thought Defiance was just okay. Well I hope he does a good job.

Well this seems like a great choice. I hope we get to hear more casting announcements soon as well.

Oh, am I the only one who wants John Williams back? For a long time, I couldn’t figure out why I didn’t enjoy the 5th film as much as I should have, and I decided that the score was what really bothered me. Hopefully it’s better in HBP, but I really want John Williams back.

This is good news. Appropriate cinematography could make or break the films. Blood Diamond was incredibly shot, that was the only one of the lot I’ve seen.

His work on Girl with a Pearl Earing is simply beautiful. Just beautiful and breath taking. Although that was to recreate some of the original artwork. But if anything that film has gorgeous cinematography and seriously I’m over the moon that this guy is DoPing DH
