Boot Animation, How?

Hello,
I want to have some fancy animation while booting.
Is this possible?

I've found that you can customize refind and have some background wallpaper. But what about ascii animations or gif or mp4 or something really fancy.

Can you give me resources to read?

My dream would be a boot without seeing anything else than a super neat animation. From pressing the power button to booting into window manager.

Thanks for your help! @you!

Re: Boot Animation, How?

Does your system even show anything between grub and login manager as-is?
