I will add the flash movie at the page center, just need a banner say: 1400 x 700 px that's animated slightly. I like the mountain example from the link above at 99designs article.
1) Take the snow off the mountains. 2) In the background: Add Monticello on one side of screen, a farm, a small city, all nestled in mountains. 3) I like some of the animals, 4) get rid of boats 5) keep clouds moving 6) more mountain peaks, slighly more rounded.
I have a clear vision of what we need, to help it go quickly and smoothly.
