Here's a quirky web show from yahoo.com

It has a really good looking opening.

How were they able to achieve this look?
The show open is about 10 seconds long and it occurs at the 10 second mark. (sorry for the commercial at the beginning.)

Thanks for your help!

This may have answered my question

"A filter's probably faster, but it's not necessary if you want flexibility. You need to make 3 copies of your image, then isolate the red channel in one, the green in one and the blue in one using something like Channel Mixer on each. Then layer them back together (maybe the Multiply or Add transfer control?) Add a wiggle expression to the anchor point or position of your layers and Viola!

Channel Blur would be another filter you may want to play around with for other aberration looks. It basically blurs a specific color channel."

That sounds right to me, Robert. Be careful with the Wiggle expression; the one in the open looks very controlled - you'll want to keep the frequency of the wiggle pretty low, or it could get overly jumpy.
