UE4 Lighting | Realistic Rendering Demo Scene

Original: https://docs.unrealengine.com/latest/INT/Resources/Showcases/RealisticRendering/
ALL ASSETS, TEXTURES, AND ORIGINAL SCENE BY EPIC GAMES - apart from a "Fake Shadow" plane I inserted in the scene.

I'm very much a David Fincher fan, so I tried re-lighting this scene - originally quite clinical and white - in a "sickly" yellow, similar to The Social Network, Gone Girl, and some scenes in The Girl With the Dragon Tattoo. Overall, I tried to place and control GI bounce light with one set of static points, and key/IES profile-using casting lights separately.
Another source of inspiration was The Ninth Gate (which is pretty underrated imo).

Hopefully my version of this scene is lit, graded, and framed in at least a somewhat Fincher/Cronenweth-esque manner :)
