SHOT LIGHTING HIGHLIGHTS: Shot lighting; dramatic volumetrics to create underwater look; Noir, Black and White lighting; Hallway and "Starfishbucks" Set Light Rigs; Integrating 2D Motion Graphics (MG) completed by MG Artists.

Octo Ninja (2021) is a black and white, 3D animated, underwater action-comedy. For this project, I was the Lighting and Compositing Lead; I was responsible for multiple set light rigs (including the sets showcased in these shots) and multiple shot lighting and compositing. I managed a team of 8 lighting and compositing artists under a tight deadline to deliver short film by premiere date.
