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!

Well I saw Girl with a Pearl Earring and though the cinematography was stunning. I’m sure he’ll do DH justice!

Wow, unexpected choice. I’m a fan of Cuaron’s work with PoA, but it’ll be interesting to see how he does it.
