From Skull Island To The Shire: Andrew Lesnie (1956-2015)

Oscar winning cinematographer Andrew Lesnie (Lord of the Rings, King Kong, Rise of the Planet of the Apes) has sadly passed away, aged 59. Lesnie’s frequent collaborator Peter Jackson (Lord of the Rings) led the tributes beautifully on his Facebook page, here is just a small snippet of his touching piece.

“Dearest Andrew, you never sought nor wanted praise – you never needed to hear how good you were, you only ever cared about doing great work and respecting the work of others. But on behalf of all those who were lucky enough to collaborate with you, love you and in turn, respect your mastery of story, of light and of cinema magic – you are one of the great cinematographers of our time.”
