Client: Blowfishfx Ltd. (
Description: Wholly responsible for look & feel of various projects. My way of working is entirely different that traditional working which involves preparing thumbnail painting for lighters to understand the exact needs of a client. Then locking palettes for various moods. I teach lighting
August ’ 2008 – Technical Head (Lighting/Shading) (consultant)

September’ 2007 – Technical Head (Lighting/Shading)
Client: FAT LIZARD ENTERTAINMENT (
Description: Converting 2D studio into a 3D studio by giving specific mental ray trainning to the existing stuff to meet the challenge of making a feature . Taking care of technical issues regarding shading & lighting.
December’ 2005 – Technical Head (Lighting/Shading)
Client: Maya Entertainment Ltd.
Description: I am responsible for creating lit environments and elements, including placing key lights, creating shadows for both live action integration and fully CG images, texture coordinate application (including fur application and perspective texture application), texture map painting, material property/shader specification, and composting (both as a means of lighting and the combining of scene elements). Led the implementation, testing, and integration in production of a practical subsurface scattering solution for skin.
Here I conduct several experiments on high quality images through the exploitation of parallelism on both multi processor machines and across network of machines( scan line algorithm and BSPs). Main challenge is to put user-settable parameters to achieve even higher performance than normally achieved by the built-in automatic scene cost analysis. Here we are working for different kinds of caustic such as multiple reflections /or multiple refraction, caused by self-reflection/refraction, volume caustics. Using this system we simulate any combination of diffuse, specular and glossy reflection and transmission like color bleeding caused by diffuse interreflections and volume scattering.
*** Composting is the main part in production. As a last phase of lighting process, I use Autodesk's Combustion and Adobe's After effects. After taking out several passes from 3D ( Diffuse, specular, ambient, direct light, indirect light, ambient occlusion, normal, coverage, UV passes), I composite on those softwares. After first pass of lighting, as a second pass of lighting can be done on composting by making incoming 2D pass as 3d pass. In the process, rotoscoping is done as per the requirements of projects. My last job would be a color-grading job to get the richness of a subject.
In the process of lighting, I extensively care for texturing for exact look and contrast level difference to avoid unnecessary rendering issues such as over brighten color means unclamped color, shadow edging problems, low depth bump maps.

1) The Tale of Jack Frost

Client: Mike Young Productions,
Description: Planning of rendering process using MAYA. We had to create underwater scene where lighting was a major challenge. So we used Maya’s fluids resources to create water sequences for DIVE OLLY DIVE, produced by Mikeyoung Production.
