The Day the Earth Stood Still

When I started at Weta to work on Avatar, they needed some last minute lighting help on The Day the Earth Stood Still. Gort was to appear in some outdoor and nighttime lighting scenes which needed to be lookdeved and lit. I was assigned to the central park sequence and came up with the favored outdoor lighting look which was used for the rest of the sequence.

Check out the trailer here on apple.

Here’s a 7min clip.
