flickering line animation

I'm posting this both in PSD and AE forums - because I presume that solution could be hidden in those two softwares.

So this is what I have created with PSD and AE:

Camera Obscura 2005 from Michal Poniedzielski on Vimeo.

and the question is:

how to simplify process od creation those quasi animated flickering lines in not moving objects ("living" outlines, so to speak).

I usually use PSD to create three layers - each drawn from scratch - and loop them in AE. But when it comes to more complex objects (like in my actual project when I have to DRAW three loop stages for 28 seriff letters!!) it would be good to use some filter. I would like to draw one drawing, and aply a filter on it, to create second, and than third loop stage layer. This filter should distort the line a bit, so it could flicker.

I've tried some of distortion filters included in PSD, but those lacks RANDOMNESS - it's allways the same pattern of distortion.

So do you have some clues? My soul would be 10 years younger if I could use such a miracle filter :) OR maybe it's not a filter? Maybe action? Or somethin'?

Thanks in advance, Micz
