You've Come To Journey's End.  
So, so sad to hear of Andrew Lesnie's passing. His work bringing Middle-Earth to life was unparalleled. He was a genius of cinematography and his passion was always evident in everything he did. When the first Hobbit extended edition came out on DVD, I remember squealing and shouting his name when I saw him in the behind-the-scenes. As if running into an old friend on the street corner, I was thrilled to have him back in my living room. He will be missed.

Andrew Lesnie, 1956-2015
Sleep now, And dream of the ones who came before

Apparently Andrew had a heart attack. He was only 59. It was one of the first thing I thought as well, that Peter must be heartbroken. :(

Yes, I read that he had a heart attack after I asked the question. I'm guessing he had no history of heart problems. His death seemed totally unexpected. Such a shame.

That's a beautiful tribute. What a loss.

Thank you. Andrew Lesnie and Richard Taylor are my two favorite Crew/Production people on LOTR and I am just heartbroken to have lost Andrew so soon. I can't imagine how Peter and CO feel today. :(
