Pacific Rim – 2013
I really enjoyed working on this one. Great director, great VFX Supe, great crew!
I was the lighting sequence supervisor on the pre-credit Gypsy/Knifehead fight as well as the sole Lighting TD on the section near the end when Striker explodes. This show was unlike any other I had worked on since we were using a new lighting tool (Katana) a new renderer (Arnold) and a whole new pipeline ( Alembic caches). It certainly made the rush to get a trailer ready for Comicon a thrill ride. As one person put it we were “sewing our parachute on the way down”. Luckily we’re very good a sewing. 🙂
