Video tributes, or “supercuts” as they’re sometimes called, are rather commonplace, and while most of them are pretty one-note, today a video surfaced online that’s too good not to share.  Titled “Shadows in the Valley”, this video is a celebration of the work of cinematographer Roger Deakins, piecing together just a few of the masterful shots that make up his illustrious career.  From The Assassination of Jesse James to Skyfall to Barton Fink to Fargo to The Shawshank Redemption to O Brother Where Art Thou to No Country for Old Men, Deakins’ filmography is filled with gorgeous film after gorgeous film.  He’s a true genius at manipulating and capturing light, and he’s one of the most gifted people working today.  We have only one Deakins-led film to look forward to this year, the war drama Unbroken, but this video is a wonderful reminder of the variety of work Deakins has elicited, which somehow also feels so singular.

Hit the jump to watch the Roger Deakins video, which was put together by Plot Point Productions, and sound off in the comments with some of your personal favorite Deakins shots.
