How can I make a composition stay pinned to a shot so it revealed by a tilt

I am trying to have a text message pop up be pinned to one point so it is revealed by an in-camera tilt. I have tried using the track to track a particular spot but I can't see to get the track point to go out of frame. I am finding it so hard to find a relevant tutorial and I could really use some help with this. 

 

Reference video and images are attached. Right now I'm just using position keyframes to give the illusion it's staying in place, but I want it to be frozen solid and reveal itself as the camera tilts up.

Here's the workflow that I would use:

  • Move down the timeline until the camera starts to tilt up
  • Split the footage layer using the keyboard shortcut Shift + Ctrl/Cmnd + D
  • Change to the Motion Tracking workspace to make your workflow more efficient
  • Camera Track the last part of the footage making sure to spin down the Advanced options and select Detailed Analysis
  • When the camera has been solved, drag a selection around as many points as you can in the background eliminating the actor's head.
  • Move the target to the top of the frame, right-click and select Create Solid and Camera.

  • Right-click on the Track Solid 1 layer and set it as a guide layer (I never use nulls because you cannot see if they track correctly when you preview the shot)
  • Make your graphic layer 3D (It will probably disappear, but don't worry)
  • Hold down the Shift key and parent the graphic layer to the Track Solid 1 layer
  • Select the graphic layer and press Alt/Option + Ctrl/Cmnd + O to open Auto Orientation and set it to Orient to Camera
  • If the layer is too small, scale it up
  • Press R to rotate the graphic until it is horizontal
  • Adjust the Y position of the graphic

All done
