In my opening scene, I have my center fern in the spotlight to start of the animation. Initially, I have had the sunray as a paper fold out but after analysing my scene and fiddling with the lightings, I thought that having the table lamp would have a better effect. With this, I am thinking of just having the lamp slightly off screen so that you won't see it but you will hear the lamp click, and light will shine on the center fern.
