Tributes have continued to pour in for a Chalfont St Giles film producer who a coroner has deemed took his own life.

Steve Wright, 48, is credited by some as being responsible for bringing major films such as Star Wars and Harry Potter to light.

He was found in March this year by builders who had arrived at his Chalfont St Giles home to renovate his home with a coroner this month ruling at an inquest that he had taken his own life.

The film producer had been suffering with depression and departs his wife, Nicola, who he met more than 20 years ago and their two children.

A Fundraising page has been set up on behalf of Steve’s family, with more than £37,000 being raised so far with more than 400 people contributing.

One of the tributes was from Patrick Comerford. 

He said: “Steve was a much loved member of the Star Wars CFX family and had friends and admirers throughout the wider industry. 

“An immensely skilled, creative mechanic who time and time again solved problems quickly and without fuss, he was the ultimate team player – ever supportive and the guy you wanted by your side when the pressure was on. 

“It is no coincidence how much has been raised to help his family, for whom we are all devastated.”

Senior coroner Crispin Butler ruled that Mr Wright died as a result of hanging.
