Vale – Andrew Lesnie ACS ASC 1956 – 2015

It is with overwhelming sadness that I inform you of the passing of our dear friend and colleague Andrew Lesnie ACS ASC, who after suffering a serious heart condition over the last six months died suddenly on Monday, 27 April.

Words cannot express the absolute feeling of loss, particularly for his immediate family, Andrew gave us many personal cinema moments, moments that will live with us forever, and yet he has been taken from us way too early, and we are now left with those memories.

The 2015 ACS National Awards for Cinematography in Hobart this weekend, will be in in honour of Andrew, who shared so much of himself with so many, and will be sorely missed.

We will advise you of any further arrangements as they come to hand, but ask that you take a moment and remember Andrew and the legacy he has left us. The family have asked for privacy at this time

National President

A Private Family Funeral Service will be held on Friday.

The Australian Cinematography Society will host a celebration of Andrews’s life at the ACS Headquarters in the next few weeks.

More details to follow.
