OT: Video Effects in Particle Illusion

Have an upcoming project that requires showing the flow of fuel in a fuel pump. It's a simple animated arrow situation. I could probably use Flash for much of the animation, but I thought - "why not give Particle Illusion a try?"

I was just testing the program with some other footage (from 1990) to see what I could accomplish with minimal effort.

Here is the result.

The original footage was shot with no intention of adding effects. The kid jumped off the slide in that direction for no reason, but noticing that, I thought an explosion at the end of the slide might be logical.

Comments welcomed.

I edited the audio, added some film grain and adjusted color in Vegas - in case you wondered how this relates to Vegas.
