One of the first rules is to make the doc as compact as possible. Including
unnecessary animation violates that rule. I don't know whether your
animation is required or marginal or optional.

That said:
1. Make sure all of your graphics are in the most economical, effective
mode. For example, if you are delivering a graphic animation as an avi
file, consider sending it as a gif. Fewer frames necessary, more control
over image size.

2. Send the final package as a self-extracting zip file. That's one of the
Actions on the Winzip toolbar. Adds a few k to the file-size, but not much.
You send an exe file to the field.
