Large movie inside a smaller loader -- possible?

amateur6 asked
Last Modified: 2013-11-11
Okay, I may be guessing incorrectly, so here's what I'm trying to duplicate:

http://www.once-upon-a-forest.com/ (source below)

It's an ancient Josh Davis site, so I know it's nothing more complicated than AS2, and the source is pretty straightforward -- but what I want to know is, how is he getting that huge background movie in there? By my thoughts, if it's just one.swf, it should be either stretched all out of proportion or scaled down...

SO, I was guessing load another movie & resize it -- but I can't find a way to get a loaded movie to enlarge to more than its parent's size. Any help much appreciated, as usual! High points for speed/desperation...
