Question
how can one make an effect bulletproof meaning how much can a person screw up an effect and still make it be incredible? work?Is there a process for this?

Answer
rule number one is never tell the audience what is supposed to happen.  Rule number two is practice the effect till you know it inside out.  armed with both of these, you can often get out of bad situations - though sometimes it can seem odd to the audience!  There is no other process that I'm aware of!
