Event: FMX 2015: Technology: Lighting and Rendering: The LEGO Movie - Cinematography in an Evolving Render Ecosystem

- @ Haus der Wirtschaft, Gloria 2, Willi-Bleicher-Straße 19, 70174 Stuttgart, Germany

For The LEGO Movie, the directorial mandate for photorealism and a miniature aesthetic that needed to feel alternately intimate and epic required a flexible, scalable approach. Could a beautiful look obtained with a much-loved renderer be retained as a modern rendering engine was integrated into the pipeline?

Glimpse, an interactive pathtracer, was initially used as a helper in a hybrid PRMan/Glimpse workflow but evolved over the course of production into a virtually standalone renderer. How did this process help in realizing the look of the film?

The talk will be given by Craig Welsh, Lighting Department Supervisor at Animal Logic.
