A plane crash during the filming of a movie over the Dry Tortugas has taken the life of cinematographer Neal Fredericks, The Miami Herald reported Tuesday.

Fredericks was best known as the cinematographer of the Blair Witch Project, a low-budget but successful horror film.

Fredericks, 35, of Los Angeles, was aboard a single-engine Cessna that crashed about 79 miles west of Key West Saturday.

The Coast Guard said the pilot and three other members of the camera crew were rescued.

U.S. Army divers recovered Fredericks' body from the plane Sunday.
