I don't see anything specific here. If you mean the sky tearing away, then clearly this could easily be done with a bit of fractal Noise, a linear wipe and Roughen edges used as a matte on the target layer. In the video it seems to be just a simple gradientg wipe based on the clouds.
I believe he's referring to the rapid zoom out at 1:28. This is a video that was time manipulated to move really fast and you can do that even in editing software.
