Scene 08 – Lighting and Camera Test

This starts with the original Photoshop illustrations, then I added shading, light and shadow using adjustment layers and solids in After Effects. I call it the lighting stage, but I don’t use any lights. I add a camera move to all my scene set ups for a few reasons. The first is to make sure everything is working properly and no layers are freaking out. Second, I like to go to the extremes – see where the scene will break down and look flat or wrong. I generally don’t use this camera move in the final animation.
