    Megamind: lighting metro city at night



    In the Dreamworks Animation film Megamind, our main visual goal for the sequence where Roxanne is kidnapped by Titan, is for the audience to experience first hand the grave danger that she is going through. To achieve this goal, we needed to make sure that everybody could relate to what a city looks like. Given that the lighting is such an important visual component of what defines a city at night, we paid special attention to the lighting to ensure it was tangible and believable.
