You need something similiar as plymouth. And as I sad plymouth already
has a text plugin which is doing exact the same which you want to have.

I doubt that it will be a lot faster. Plymouth isn't in any way
There is just a plymouth Daemon started at the preinit stage and this
one blocks the normal "text" output on TTy1 and blends in a splash (no
matter which plugin you use, if text or real graphics or even simple movie)
