As I was modelling the house anyway, I opted to model the porch that would flicker during our animation.
We decided on a dingy metal light- maybe with the wiring hanging around the beams, giving the vibe the electrics were dodgy and done by an amateur.
I really liked the idea of modelling a lamp similar to the bug lamps you see- with the metal hoops- giving a spaceship like vibe to the scene.
Below is the model I made. Next I’ll add it to the house.
