Shared Memories of Phil from the ACS & Panavision

Afternoon Paul,

I was just chatting with John Seale and he told me that Phil Radin had passed away over the weekend.

It really stopped me in my tracks, as like many, I thought Phil had recovered from his previous illness a number of years ago.

I know I speak for many, particularly our ACS members who knew and worked with Phil, in that he was a wonderful man, a true gentleman and one of honesty and integrity. He was dedicated to the pursuit of excellence in cinematography and his support and collaboration with so many cinematographers, focus pullers, loaders is stuff of legend.

He was an incredibly generous man, with his time and his energy.

I will miss him as many others will and if you could pass on the deepest sympathies from us all within the ACS to his family, work colleagues and friends it would be greatly appreciated.

RIP Phil…We will miss you, and particularly your broad smile and your generosity of spirit.


I had the pleasure and honour of working with Phil for over 25 years and you would not find a nicer or more sincere man in this industry. I spent a few hours with him outside of work, usually with a drink in hand, and he was never anything else but genuine.

I will miss him greatly.
