    i need a counter to overlap on my video like a rising cost of something over someones head.
    something like this:
    http://www.istockphoto.com/file_thu...50-split-flap-flip-counter-calendar-clock.jpg

    But I need it to keep going up.

    the idea is a student debt video that has students walking around campus with numbers increasing over their head to represent the debt they are carrying from student loans.

    How would i do this?
