I think I finally have the monthly thing figured out. I wrote this and am pretty certain it will work out as needed for me. The original plan was to write one script per camera like I've done for the daily time lapse videos. This time I wanted to use a list and loops instead. This means I edit the lists when/if I add more cameras to build time lapse videos from.

I was going to breakdown what each step does but I've got to get to a meeting right now. If anyone wants me to explain I'd be happy to latter.
