adding cloud animation to light

So I have a Point light, Im wanting to have it get the effect of a fire. Pretty much the light varys in all directions, brightness adjusts, etc. I was thinking of having a mask sort of thing ontop of the light that would be panning/animated ontop of the light. Im not sure if thats the best way to do it or if its possible. If anyone has some insight it would be very helpful!!

A simple and effective way of simulating the fire light is to make an animation on the light that controls the Intensity and the Color (not much).

I think it’s a good start.

If you want to go further you can add multiple point lights (not much) and activate them ramdomly to make the shadows move.
