The undercroft Sequence - Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker

I spent most of my time on Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker doing the undercroft sequence shots under the supervision of Jeff De Guzman. This environment had to give a feel of horror,thrill and intense drama to the audience and a tad bit of creepiness and mystery. It was really fun in terms of the complexity of lighting and forming interesting composition. Every shot had to look different and we had to time the lightning to support the action scenes and highlight the key moments and features in the environment. I had never done anything like this before so I really enjoyed working on these shots. Basically I was responsible for the lighting, layout and set-dressing and of course we had a great help from comp to get to this look. I also had to model/sculpt the huge wall we see if few of the shots and up res some of the cracks.

We created this system of interactive lightnings in 3d which can be timed as per individual shots. Done in clarisse.
