The magic of LIGHT!

It always amazes me how good lighting can transform a set from something good to something amazing. I was happy to have the Robot Chicken/Moral Orel DP Jeff Gardner in to help me with lighting this week. JeffyG had some really cool ideas and the end product looks amazing! Thanks Jeffy!

I also want to thank Celeste Leipham, one of our Assistant Animators on Robot Chicken, for generously giving her time this week to break down the dialog tracks for this scene. I've got a nice tidy stack of exposure sheets all ready to go!

Here's Jeffy shedding some light on the Brawl Magnet stand-in puppet (The real puppet is still in progress):

Hey Ethan,

The stuff that's possible with low voltage lighting is really awesome these days. I remember reading back issues of American Cinematographer and seeing a stopmotion set absolutely bathed in light while the camera was stopped down. Given how dark digital stopmotion animators can work now, there are more opportunities than ever to really lose yourself in a shot!
