The creative shrimp team brings you - light!!!!

Well that sounds pretty grandiose in a particular context, but! 2021 illuminates us all, so let's get into it with a lighting tutorial.

In this video we'll be taking a shake at...

2 different ways for animating switching a light on and off.
Having some fun with autokeyframing
Animating light flicker
Animating with drivers
Creating custom properties
Synchronizing the lamp objects with the emissive materials.

See you great Blender folks out there. (Only possible due to light incidentally, just sayin'.)
