This challenge is awesome timing since I’ve been meaning to train up on some lighting techniques for work this summer. What I’m going to do is take the Pontiac car provided and put it into a tracked shot. I’ve already grabbed a shot from VideoCopilot and tracked it in Blender. I was originally going to do the lighting in Blender but since I’ve got some down time at work, I’m going to make use of the Arnold licenses we have and give that a try instead!
The “story” of the shot will be that this person had been driving the car, ended up in this lot and cannot find whoever he was pursuing, so he got out the car in frustration. It will be running idle just behind him.
