Video Collaboration with Sony Vegas Studio (miles apart)?

A friend and I are tying to collaborate on a fan video and we're both using Sony Vegas Studio (er, version 6, yes, it's old). We live 2100 miles apart so obviously that's the issue. Any ideas about how to go about doing this? I've thought of several ideas like zipping files and uploading and downloading them back and forth, or using something like DropBox to share the files.

I'm thinking Dropbox or something like it might be the solution, though my main concern is working on the video project at the exact same time. If she opens it and starts work on it and then I open it a few minutes later and work on it at the same time, I don't know if the changes will take on both sides with something like this, or if it is even possible for us to work on the file at the same time (Dropbox or no Dropbox).

So I'm wondering if anyone has any experience with this and has any suggestions or ideas?

Thanks in advance!!!
