Vader Immortal: Cinematic Lighting in VR on Oculus Quest
The talk will focus on the Cinematic Lighting techniques and tools used to bring Vader Immortal to Oculus Quest VR
ILMxLAB Lead Lighting Technical Director
Ronman Ng is the Lead Lighting TD on the Vader Immortal series, Ralph Breaks VR and Secrets of the Empire at ILMXLAB. In these real-time VR projects, Ng brings the language of Cinematic Lighting to these immersive experiences daring you to imagine. With 15+ years working in the Computer Animation industry, Ng has learned that Lighting Design succeeds when it is in the service of the Story. In VR, visual composition and choreography become essential tools to maintaining immersion, curiosity and interest when your eyes are freed from a locked camera.
Ng is grateful to have learnt from industry giants at PDI/Dreamworks and Pixar as a Lighting TD and CG Supervisor. His film credits include notably "How to Train Your Dragon", "Boss Baby" and the "Shrek" and "Madagascar" sequels. Previous to ILMXLAB, his first foray into VR was at Oculus Story Studio, where he worked on the recent Emmy Award winning "Wolves in the Walls".
