Link is OK, but I can't see the content due to some youtube geoblocking.

its the ending credits from
Harry Potter and the Half Blood Prince.

Youtube keep deleting it but i just put up the credits.
I found it somewhere else. This should work and give ppl an idea
of what i was trying to make.

The revealing pat looks like using some cloud tank footage and masking, the fade out is a bit trickier, I would try combining fractal noise and displacements for the text.

you might also want to get Riot Gear. It has a bunch of that ink footage, ready to go.
