I was struggling with the shadows in the scene and as a quick fix I imported the silhouette of of all the frames into c4d and extruded them. Lit the scene to match and then exported the sequence to composite in after effects. 

In an alternate direction I played with the idea of having gold scale the walls in a fire like formation.
