The best work-around I have so far for the fade a single frame issue is 
to make the watermark image FFmpeg's main input, loop input, and swap 
around the sources in the overlay filter:

Something like this:

ffmpeg -threads 4 -loop_input -i "watermark.png" -vf 
-vcodec dvvideo -aspect 16:9 -top 0 -an -vframes 300 -y "out.mov"

You don't get the sound, so you'd have to do that separately.
You'd have to set the -vframes or it tries to go on for ever, and fails 
when the movie source ends.

What would be nice is a loop_input feature on the movie video filter 
source... That would solve your (and my) problem.

Hope this helps (probably not...)
