I have this scene where I want to add the dark and creepy film look filter. But what I want to happen is this:

The camera is at somebodys feet and it pans up to reveal the face..as it pans up I want the screen to fill from the bottom up with the dark and creepy film look not have it appear all at once.

Is this possible and advise technique.

Thank you very much.

Apply a mask to the grading, then animate it wiping upwards.

In Clab it would be easiest to use a grading object.

You could also use a transparency grading filter to the grading object, then tween the value over the length of time you want the transition to take place.
