Unit: The art of lighting

Without virtual lights, animated films would be as dark as a live action movie would be without actual lights. Pixar’s Lighting Artists use light to support the emotion of the story and make the films look and feel believable. In this lesson you will learn about the properties of light and how different types of light sources are used to bring beauty, depth and emotion to Pixar films.
