Andrew Lesnie (1956-2015)


Recommended Posts



Academy Award-winning cinematographer Andrew Lesnie, who frequently collaborated with filmmaker Peter Jackson, has died at the age of 59.


The Australian camera operator won a 2001 Oscar for "The Lord of the Rings: The Fellowship of the Ring." He also worked with New Zealander Jackson on the two other films of the trilogy based on the books by J.R.R. Tolkien -- "The Lord of the Rings: The Two Towers" (2002) and "The Lord of the Rings: The Return of the King" (2003). He was the cinematographer for all three installments of "The Hobbit" prequels.

This was so surprising and sad to see yesterday - I had forgotten that he did win an Oscar in 2002.  Below is a link to a short film made by Sean Astin called The Long and Short of It, in which Lesnie stars.  This is what almost always comes to mind when I see him in the documentaries on the DVDs.
