Compositing done in Nuke for Lego Short Shot #03.

This was one of the shots I lit and composited for a western-themed lego short. Of my three lit shots, this posed the biggest challenge in lighting, rendering, and compositing. In the end, using Arnold's lights, render layers, and Nuke, I was able to create a neon glow on the foreground character and a rack focus as the camera panned across.
