David Moorhead who headed up the Lighting & Camera depts for the spectacular ‘Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse,’  movie took time out to visit us in Kilkenny and give the crew an amazing insight into one of the most groundbreaking animated movies of all time. Taking over two hours he divulged the thought process and workings behind the choices made as told from a lighting and camera perspective. He has worked in studios such as: Amblin, Dreamworks, PDI, and Sony Pictures Animation. His Credits also include; Arthur Christmas and Cloudy with a Chance of Meatballs. Since age 12 David always had a camera in his hand and by 17 began shooting catalog & fashion photography professionally.  He “pretended” to go Film School in San Diego just to gain access to equipment to shoot music videos and commercials. He gained fundamental digital production experience at a growing tech company that colorized classic B&W movies. There he helped develop the first commercial digital ink & paint system in 1989 which launched his career in animation.
It was truly inspirational to have him share his work.
