      Hello you all! English is not my native leaguage, I hope you excuse my mistakes.

      So, here’s the thing. I am shooting a 60 secs stop motion with puppets, where the puppets must be set on fire. Fire is going to be animated in 2D animation. I am wondering how can I light this scene, so that fire seems to come from the puppets. I want it to be the more organic as possible.

      Do you have any idea on mind? I appreciate your help. Thank you so much!!

      Here’s a still from a test we did. This is our scene and the fire starts when we go to the reverse shot.

        If the fire on the characters is animate does it need more than a little interactive firelight hitting the areas on which they are sitting? I would suggest the main issue will be the flicker of the firelight and syncing that between what light is in camera and the 2D animation.
