Went to see ICE AGE 4: CONTINENTAL DRIFT this afternoon and caught the trailer for next year's Blue Sky Studios entry EPIC: THE MOVIE.
Blue Sky remains king of CGI lighting. Early in the Blue Sky success, I heard Chris Wedge emphasize the importance of lighting to their projects, and they apparently remain dedicated to that art. Pixar has the story department, Dreamworks has physiological 'realism,' and Blue Sky, hands down, nails the light.
This movie looks visually stunning - absolutely stunning. Look for the subtle nuance in lighting (like fall-off across the eyes in close-ups as but one example I noticed).
