The Book of Life

Here is another lighting key I did for the film. In this scene Joaquin proposes to Maria, a gesture that forces Maria to either be true to her own heart or to save the town she loves.
The environment, color, and lighting was designed to reflect Maria’s inner turmoil in the scene. Much like her inner state, these components are a stark contrast to the otherwise vibrant festive environments in the film and references the same visual language designed for The Land of the Remembered.

The Book of Life

This is one of many lighting keys I did for the film. They wanted the moon light to feel like it was shot day for night, spaghetti western style. This was a lot of fun to paint I really enjoyed playing with the warm and cool colors.
