In this lecture, Jeremy Vickery continues on the foundation of his first lesson 'Efficient Cinematic Lighting'. Leaving the basics behind, Jeremy delves into lighting for animation. He shares his methods for lighting a one minute short film with two characters and 17 shots that culminates into a beautiful short film. The lecture’s emphasis is on shot continuity, getting characters to read in the short moments they appear on screen, how to approach lighting entire sequences and not just still images, and how to keep render times down in consideration of the budget of an independent film. Jeremy also discusses his methods for being fast and efficient and how to organize the lighting and compositing of a sequence of shots.
