Display multiple blocks withing one slideshow

Hey all,

I'm trying to build a view slideshow that displays multiple content types but displays each type in its own respective slide. How would I go about doing this with views slideshow DD?

The idea is to have one slide titled news and in the background print out teasers for new articles. The next slide would then be a placeholder for discussions and the next for blog post. I'd like to use bullets for each teaser as the actual content of the slide.

Is this possible?
