Andrew Christie passed away last sunday after a long and brave fight against cancer. In the 

early eighties he founded Complete Video in London which quickly became one of the 

innovative and groundbreaking post houses that made London a center of excellence in this 

industry, he also founded Smoke and Mirrors and after that he started the Cut and Run 

editing house. For those of us fortunate enough to know him and work for him this is a huge 

loss, he was quite simply the best boss I ever had, when you worked for Andrew you weren't 

just an employee you were family, he took care of his crew like they were his own kith and 

kin. The London Post community is in mourning for one of the greats of this industry, it 

truly is the end of an era.

There will be a thanksgiving service for Andrew at Beaulieu Abbey near his home on Friday 

August 27th at 2.30pm. After the service there will be a gathering at his house, his wife 

Casey and children Robson and Jamie have requested colourful shirts and shorts be worn in 

true Andrew style, many stories will be recounted and no doubt there will be laughter amid 

the tears as we remember a true legend.
