cartoon lighting for production

Hi guys, im wondering how to light a cartoon serie for production, i mean do they animate the light position in each sequence (exemple when two persons facing each others and talks), so i need to change light position depending of the angle of the camera, or i need to create a global lighting in the room, so that the person looks okay every place he moves, or i create a light rig that is attached to every single person ???? im really confused ..any one can help please... a tutorial will be awsome... thanks in advance..

It is advisable that you make three light rigs one for each character and one for the whole BG or environment ,you need to adjust the light rigs according to the camera or shot requirement but you should not adjust the BG light Rig more often unless there is some changes required like different BG rig for night time or day time etc.

It is advisable that you should parent light rig to it's respective character if there is too much movement for better control.

I hope my suggestions would prove helpful in lighting you shot.
