Is it possible to eliminate the content text in the slide show?

Like the theme. I am using the slideshow on the home page ( Currently, each post that is featured in the slidshow has the image appear, and then the post's headline and first few lines of text appears by sliding up from the bottom and then it slides away.

Is it possible to only have the headline show? Also, I only want one line to scroll up. In other words, I don't want the headline and the empty space that the text took up to scroll over the image, I only want the headling to scroll up, without a large gray space below it. I'm basically trying to minimize the amount of the space the text covers up when it scrolls up over the image.
