Panoramic Splendor: Another Big-Time Alum Accomplishment

March 7, 2003

Harris Savides (Film and Video, 1992) was the director of photography for Gus Van Sant’s newest film, Gerry. In a recent New York Times review of the film, his work is highlighted: “Harris Savides’s panoramic cinematography unfolds as a sequence of extended, lingering takes that create the illusion of a story being told in real time, then break that illusion.” The minimalist film, with its expansive wilderness setting and sparse dialogue, seems an unusually fertile canvas for a gifted visual artist, and Savides obviously fits the bill.
