Footer Slide Up Transition Jquery or CSS3

Problem

I'm trying to recreate this cool slide up footer that i found on The Internship Movie Site. Now I've done the wireframe layout, but I'm having trouble guessing the correct CSS transition effect. I've tried using the "top" and "height" transition properties but I can't seem to get it. My guess it's just something very minor that I'm missing, or perhaps I should just use Jquery instead of CSS. Let me know what you guys think and here's the fiddle

HTML

<!-- Begin Site Wrapper -->
<div id="wrapper">

<!-- Begin Header -->
<div id="header">Menu List Here
    </div><!-- End Header -->

<!-- Begin Site Content -->
<div id="sitecontent">Some Site Content Goes Here
    </div><!-- End Site Content -->    

<!-- Begin Footer --> 
    <div id="footerwrapper">
        <div id="footerleft">Left</div>
        <div id="footercenter">Center</div>
        <div id="footerright">Right</div>
        <div id="hugetextreveal">Sed ut perspiciatis unde omnis iste natus error sit voluptatem accusantium doloremque laudantium, totam rem aperiam, eaque ipsa quae ab illo inventore veritatis et quasi architecto beatae vitae dicta sunt explicabo.

    </div> <!-- End Footerwrapper -->
</div> <!-- End Site Wrapper -->

CSS

#wrapper {width: 600px; margin: 0 auto;}
#header {background: #000; color: #fff; height: 30px; text-align: center}
#sitecontent {min-height: 400px; background: #ff0000;}

#footerwrapper {width: 600px; height: 40px; background: #000; color: #fff; text-align: center; position: relative; overflow: hidden}
#footerleft {width: 200px; float: left; position: relative }
#footercenter {width: 200px;  float: left; position: relative }
#footerright {width: 200px;  float: left; position: relative }
#hugetextreveal {width: 100%; height: auto;  float: left; padding-top: 20px; position: relative;  transition: max-height 0.7s ease-in;  }

#footerwrapper:hover #hugetextreveal {
max-height: 200px;}

Solution

I added changes to these two lanes, have a look, it's really simple

#footerwrapper {width: 600px; height: 40px; bottom:0px;  background: #000; color: #fff; text-align: center; position: relative; overflow: hidden; transition: all 0.5s ease 0.2s; }
#footerwrapper:hover { height:140px; bottom:100px; }

The page in question you would like to copy, It's all CSS transistions:

#footer:hover {
    height: 295px;
}
#footer{
    -webkit-transition: height 0.5s ease;
    -moz-transition: height 0.5s ease;
    -o-transition: height 0.5s ease;
    -ms-transition: height 0.5s ease;
    transition: height 0.5s ease;
}

You can probably do this in jQuery:

$("#footerwrapper").hover(function () {
    $("#hugetextreveal").fadeIn(700);
},
function () {
    $("#hugetextreveal").fadeOut(700);
});
