I'm a novice at jquery (or maybe just a beginner).

I have this page - http://aug4th.com/testpage/index_test.html (content has been removed so ignore the broken menu and empty areas)

I only need help with the portion that says, "Target at scale..." and has floating people.

Right now on hover, the profile images change along with the background image. I need the profile images to animate in a way where their name remains in place (animators, photographers, etc) and the image quickly fades into the next and fades out when you move away. Right now it's jumpy. I'm not sure how to approach it.

I tried to animate it and do some things but i really couldn't get right.

Suggestions?
