This project, was a challenge because any time you create a dark space you risk loosing detail that gives context to each shot. Global corrections are really limiting on things like this.
There are subtle pushes of light in most of these shots. If you click back and forth on the Vador shot below you might notice the light that comes into face. In the finished spot you'll notice that he's moving through the room on that shot. Besides being really selective in where the light is pushing I also had to animate these selections so they'd match the movement of the camera and the action in the scene. There are other ones in there but I'll let you discover them.
