I have a lightbox for viewing images and clicking through galleries, etc.

My boss wants a flash-like opening graphic of the gate opening for the gated community that we're marketing... but I don't want to use flash, and we all know why so I won't go into it.

How do I activate the list of images in the lightbox and fade through them (I have 10-12 images that will mimic the gate opening animation) and then stop on the last one and fade up the word "enter"?

My idea is to show the end-result to my boss and hope that he doesn't like it so I can take it out, but I can't just NOT do it.

Thanks in advance for your help.

(btw changing the item from "display:none" to "display:block" is how the lightbox is opened)
