The focus seen in this piece is to recreate the mood in the film "Hugo" using lighting. This particular scene was interesting and posed many challenges due to specific factors. The first would be the complexity of the lighting rig. There are a vast number of lights in the scene that each contributes to the overall feel; while, various pipes and pieces of the building cannot be seen by the camera but change how the lights behave. The other major contributor to the mood of the shot is atmospherics which poses challenges upon themselves. In the end, the look was achieved by creating fog volumes and adjusting their noise levels for each particular render layer.
