Hi I'm a DOP on a commercial that revolves around superheroes and one of them uses this frost/freezing power. Now I've figured out how to light it and the look I'm going for but I don't know how to properly cue it.

 

I'm using the OK Tire winter tire commercial as an example of what I'm trying to do - Start in regular Tungsten lighting in an office than to the freeze effect where the lighting switches to the freezing light (for lack of a better term). I want it to be a smooth transition where everything is practical and then enhanced with CGI. I really want to avoid cutting to another shot for the effect to work. Like in the OK Tire commercial I want it to be one shot - at least for the lighting switch. but when I was doing this my self I got two very different colour temperatures and it just didn't look good. the before and after were great but the transition was really bad and that is what I'm really struggling with. Any help on this would be amazing

 

I've attached the photo and the link of the example I'm talking about.
