Andy, the Art Director of Sprite Fright, outlines five main subjects of study that are fundamental to his lighting approach:
Studying real-world sets to have a practical approach to lighting, studying live-action movies to understand how they deal with light in a photorealistic medium, studying the paintings of the old masters who have mastered the art of light over the centuries, studying the modern masters who have brought these techniques to the modern world such as the directors of photography on current films, and finally studying behind-the-scenes footage that gives further insight into the production design of films.
