how to fix a mask to a point in video footage in After Effects

OK this is my first time posting and I am new to After Effects, so thank you for taking the time to read my post.

I have video footage that I shot, where I walk up to a wall and turn to face it. I have fixed to the wall an animation that I made so it looks like an animated billboard as it were. what I want to do is add another ring of light using the Videocopilot sabre effect. this I think will look good and will also hide the fact that its is on the wall. so I want to fix this mask on the billboard so I will get the extra light and glow. I can make the mask no problem, I just need it to be fixed around the edge of the animation on the wall. I'm sure this is a super easy thing and an ignorant post, so I do apologise in advance.
any help would be huge. thank you for your time.

I used this technique to mount the animation.







can i use the same method to mount the mask?
