SDCC – Sanjay’s Super Team Panel Wrap-up

Inside Out Interview with Angelique Reisch
- Starting at 32:23 into the podcast we present our discussion with Angelique Reisch as she walks though a day-in-the-life of a Lighting team member, discusses the Principles of Lighting (which are fantastic) and talks through some of the challenges and successes from Inside Out. Pay special attention to the chat about the newly developed geometry light that the Renderman team created – this is a great example of teamwork and brilliant technology as they turned Joy into a light source (rather than solely being lit).
- Additionally, at 58:45 into the episode, we also were lucky enough to chat with Angelique one-on-one to delve into a few more details from Inside Out.
