Cinematographer Denny Hall has died after suffering a heart attack. He was 54.
Hall was on location in New Orleans, Louisiana working on upcoming TV drama Common Law when he suffered chest pains on Thursday morning. Medics were unable to revive him.
His co-workers have paid a touching tribute to Hall with producer Karim Zreik calling him the "captain of the team" and telling The Hollywood Reporter, "We are just broken hearted."
Cinematographer John C. Flinn III, who worked with Hall on 1980s TV show Magnum, P.I, adds, "He could walk into a room that was deathly quiet or filled with negative energy and immediately liven everything up. He was a great first assistant, a great cameraman and a great cinematographer. I'm so proud of him."
Hall began his career as a camera operator on shows including Diagnosis Murder and Beverly Hills, 90210, before moving into cinematography. He also served as director of photography on U.S. series Bones and Eli Stone. »
