Blur script pack - "Blinders". Made for pretty much what you describe.

Volume select + Deletemesh?

Animated boolean? (booleans CAN work in animation, even if they're shit for modelling)

Maybe the slice modifier with remove top (or bottom) option and animate its gizmo?

matte-shadow box that you can animate to cover the object and render it out and comp the object into the scene later?
