On the Vimeo page for the video, Slain writes that “200 hours of work went into breaking down 47 of Hoffman’s roles.” What »

Nearly three weeks after the death of Philip Seymour Hoffman, it's still difficult to grasp that we're living in a world where he's no longer able to grace the screen with his presence. His filmography is so wide, his impact so lasting that it's difficult to name a performer in recent memory with a comparable track record. Hoffman's friends and fellow artists certainly think so: not long after his "The Talented Mr. Ripley" co-star Cate Blanchett dedicated her BAFTA win to Hoffman, his friend and frequent collaborator Amy Adams has paid tribute to the late actor on her appearance this week on "Inside the Actors Studio," taped three days after Hoffman's passing.
