Exclamation Duplicating a movie clip onto another

I'm sure I'm just not thinking about this right but rather than scrathc my head for hours, hopefully someone can tell me where I'g going wrong.

I'm trying to produce a sort of gallery. I want to be able to duplicate a thumbnail as many times as I require. I then want to use a mask so that the thumbnails slowly appear.

So the problem I have is duplicating a movie clip so that the duplicate lies on the layer which is being masked. I have a movieclip in the masked layer on to which I want to put the duplicated thumbnails. In other words, how do I stop my duplicate movie clip from appearing in _root?

As far as I understand, you do need to mask them again after you do the duplicateMovieClip() so that they won't be visible...
