CREATING MELTING FILM FRAME EFFECT

I digitally animated this a few months ago. There's a certain sequence of events; first the film tends to "pop" out of focus, then warp for a few seconds until it starts to blacken and eventually burn all the way through. From memory, I ended up with a layer for the "lamp" which became orange after it was "switched off," a layer for the unaffected image, a layer with variable pinching and softening matted onto that with a vignette, a layer for the black "crispy edges", various mattes for the hole and expanding areas of influence of the burned area, and of course for each of those, another two or three layers of additional detail, blending and matting to get things to look right.
The result was at best a fairly loose approximation, but it was probably the best you could do without just doing it and shooting it off the screen.

Sounds like a good reason to think of something different.
Everyone has seen it.
