Hotel Transylvania 2 – Lighting



Hotel Transylvania 2 – Lighting

Watch Director, Genndy Tartakovsky explain why lighting is so important in animated films and live action. It’s about getting a clear beat with either dark characters on a light background or light characters on a dark background.

Dracula’s rigid monster-only hotel policy has finally relaxed, opening up its doors to human guests. But behind closed coffins, Drac is worried that his adorable half-human, half-vampire grandson, Dennis, isn’t showing signs of being a vampire. So while Mavis is busy visiting her human in-laws with Johnny – and in for a major cultural shock of her own – “Vampa” Drac enlists his friends Frank, Murray, Wayne and Griffin to put Dennis through a “monster-in-training” boot camp. But little do they know that Drac’s grumpy and very old, old, old school dad Vlad is about to pay a family visit to the hotel. And when Vlad finds out that his great-grandson is not a pure blood – and humans are now welcome at Hotel Transylvania – things are going to get batty!

    I'm beginning to understand why so many animation artists are worrywarts who overthink everything. Their art is to overthink everything. Where's the light coming from in this scene? Does it reflect the mood? It's an old hotel, it needs dust particles in the air. Will it be distracting to the audience? And on and on and on over every little decision!
