On the night of November 18th 2017, director of photography and camera operator Mark Milsome was tragically killed shooting a stunt sequence on location in Ghana.


Everyone who had the great fortune of knowing Mark is devastated by the loss of a truly exceptional man. Kind, generous, openhearted, clever, funny, loyal, compassionate and indisputably talented, Mark was respected and adored by his colleagues, friends and family.


Mark was a true cinephile and had an insightful and encyclopaedic knowledge of film. He loved his work and the adventures it entailed. Having grown up on film sets as a child, he transformed his passion into his profession. He loved the camaraderie of the crew family and thrived on the collaborative creative process. With a career spanning thirty years he rose from clapper loader to cinematographer, working with some of the finest filmmakers and cinematographers: Steven Spielberg, Stephen Frears, Richard Eyre, Nicholas Hytner, Mark Herman, Marc Evans, Marc Forster, James Marsh, Andrew Dunn, Graham Frake, Fabien Wagner, Benoit Delhomme, Roberto Schaefer, Seamus McGarvey and Remi Adefarasin, amongst others.


Above and beyond his work, he loved his life with his soulmate and wife, Andra, and their beloved daughter Alice. Mark and Andra were meant for each other. They shared the same values in life, always expressed with love, a sense of fun and humour. And most of all they shared a profound love for Alice.


Please consider honouring Mark by contributing to a memorial fund for Andra and Alice.
