yeah, it really depends on which rendering engine you are going to use...

look into BMRT its free, its renderman compliant & it does GI & Caustics

create a spot light, and attach a projection map to it.
and for the map itself, use Noise map (Turbulence)..
and alter the phase over time to animate it.. Good luck.. takes alot of tweaking, but you can make it look quite good...

Thanks


It's for a school project, the scene is a underground sub-base with light coming up from the water and hitting the ceiling

Scoot that's the best way i think.
I do it all the time.

It's simple it's easy and you don't need big render engines.

If you have water then the wrinkel from the water breaks the light.
If you use the same noise but then let it animate in the opposite direction it gives a good idea of lights hitting the water and bouncing back.

I can't help you more,  but with tweaking around you will get there.
