During the first term, I was down to work with the following groups: The Deep, Unhatched and Patience. This has now changed; the Patience group have decided they will do the lighting themselves so I will no longer be working with this group. But I have spoken to Sophie Lodge, project leader on a documentary project called The Ravens. This will be a compositing project, mixing 3D with film footage. This is a great opportunity to work as a lighter because it is matching the lighting from maya with the film footage. This is an area I am really interested in and this is where I would like to end up as a job.
Sophie has sent me a lighting plate for me to work with. It hasn’t been tracked, but I don’t mind this at all because I really enjoy tracking. The tracking will be done with MatchMover.
I will update this blog with a couple of lighting tests for The Ravens. I intend to research Image Based Lighting and will be placing one or two photorealistic royalty free models in to the footage to see if the lighting works.
In addition I will break the scene down in order to see where the light sources are.
