Yes, possible. It would be a cute video filter.
See libavfilter/ subdir in project sources. You can also ask in
libav-user at ffmpeg.org, libav-api at libav.org for help on implementing
such filter using ffmpeg API.
I've checked list of video filters that are already in ffmpeg, there
looks to be no such filter built in. But it is probable that such
filter is existing, or is easier to implement with frei0r effect
framework, which is pluggable via ffmpeg. I'm not so keen on frei0r,
so this is just a speculation on what should be researched by you.
