P.S. Hoffman (A Tribute), A Short Film Featuring Scenes From Every Film Philip Seymour Hoffman Has Ever Done

Writer, editor and director Caleb Slain has created, P.S. Hoffman (A Tribute), a beautiful memorial to actor Philip Seymour Hoffman, who tragically died on February 2, 2014. Using the entire library of his work, this 20-minute film is an incredible testimonial to the prodigious talent that is, so sadly, now lost to us all.

2Compiling his legacy has been one of the most challenging experiences I’ve ever faced as an editor, and yet indescribably rewarding. I can assure you that after 22 years on screen and nearly fifty films, we now look at the work of an actor who never had a single dishonest moment on camera. I know because I’ve seen them all. Please take a breather and raise your glasses to one of our greatest.

The cover shot of P.S. Hoffman (A Tribute) was created by “using 205 head shots from 47 of his films”.
