Some thoughts on lighting and environment stuff ...
I'm obviously lighting in patterns -- the same way I constructed the song verses and choruses. For some reason, I thought it might be different.
I'm using the rings as percussion. Small rings for almost a heart pulsing based on the beat. The big ring for major emphasis in the music or when the girls go WHOOO or YEAH to emphasis. Seems good in the editor. The helmet will tell the tale.
I'm using laser speeds as sort of emotion trackers. I speed them up during the secondary chorus (the in blue I mentioned earlier) because I want that to have more emphasis as it is my favorite.
The colors of the neons and lasers I'm just sort of using symmetrical color changes that feel good to me I try to mix colors intelligently so there isn't too much emphasis on red or blue.
I'm looking out for ways to forshadow and light important areas - like the bombs for V. You HAVE to be able to see them in advance.
I'm about 2/3 done with the lighting part.
