Thanks Ash-man! do i have to plug some mental ray photon nodes to the sss skin shader?
i was desperate the last time setting up GI
coz render times really increase plus the FG
just wondering if production uses GI or they just manipulating the spotlight to achieve the GI look. (sort of fake GI)

Do not think about whether production-houses use GI or not. if u can achieve your desired look without using GI then go for it. Although I don't think in industry GI is used that often in shots unless specifically told by sups or leads.
