I'm trying to brainstorm an effect which involves a character wearing tinfoil, which is sparking due to microwave. I have a method to do the sparking, but my biggest concern at the moment is the strong point light sources that this type of interaction creates. I've been watching several youtube clips of people putting tinfoil in a microwave, and the flash light sources are extremely intense.
Any ideas on how to achieve this strong, yet very specific light source practically? The main issue is that the light flashes from the sparking only affect the character wearing the tinfoil... and only in specific areas of his body during each flash. I've been trying to reasearch a practical method before relying on a 2D composite... but I might be out of my mind.
Any help/suggestions are greatly appreciated.
