At the beginning of my animation I need to give the idea that the man and dog are being shown at different times and this relies a lot on my backgrounds - the clock hands change, the rubbish accumulates and the shadows from the window change as the sky darkens and lightens. To test if this works I've made a short movie clip of the backgrounds cross-dissolving into each other using Premier Pro. I was pretty satisfied with result.
