Paperman is unique in that most of the lighting was placed in the hands of the artist painting that shot, as a result, EVERY shot is individually designed. Some were easy since the crazy awesome Jeff Turley would have a key, others we'd just kind of go with it. Personally, I loved this approach because it gave me a chance to explore lighting scenarios appropriate for the scene and a little for my own satisfaction. I prefer black and white work since color is not my strong suit, so this was a lot of fun for me.
We also tried to paint characters in all our scenes, because that would serve as a value guide for the final frame.
