Animating both the character and background

I’m new at storyboard pro and I don’t know how to properly explain my issue but is it possible to animate both the character and background when creating an animatic? For reference, I’ve separated the background into layers to allow for a dynamic environment but I’m not sure how to animate my whale character, using different drawings, without just making it slide from one side to the other. I don’t know what else to try, duplicating the panel didn’t work and I can’t find anything about it anywhere.
