DOP Mike DeGruy dies this week in crash off the coast of Australia

 

During the 27th Santa Barbara Film Festival on the night of February 3rd, while I was celebrating my birthday, celebrated documentarian filmmaker and venerated cinematographer Mike DeGruy died in a helicopter crash in Australia. DOP of docs like DEEP BLUE (2003) and TV series like PLANET EARTH (2006), to name but a few, this talented and adventurous artist will be missed by all. The following statement is notice from Santa Barbara Press.

"We have lost a valued member of our SBIFF family last night. Filmmaker, underwater cinematographer and adventurist Mike DeGruy died last night in a helicopter crash off the coast of Australia while scouting locations for an upcoming project. Mike, who curated the Reel Nature sidebar and was the force behind Field Trip to the Movies, had an incredible sense of adventure. He loved his work, he was full of life. He traveled the world and his passionate affection for all things outdoors was infectious and only eclipsed by his love and dedication to his wife, Mimi, and his children. And he loved sharing his passion with this festival. We’ve suffered a tremendous loss, but he would want us to forge ahead. He sent a message yesterday asking how everything was going and was so excited, saying “I can’t wait to tell you about this little adventure”…thank you, Mike, you’ve been an inspiration to us all."
