Project Description:
We have a clear plan of what has to be done:
3 simple buttons: "stand", "move", "speak"

We need a "animated" cartoon/figure/mascot that fits to the client's logo/design.
If the voice is hardly to hear (like mute), then the figure/cartoon will move it's mouth. The move should not be for specific so-called "phonemes", but it might be as general as possible. So it will look like the mascot can speak...

Of course, this is not a lip-sync feature and You do not have to read the tutorials about this, but You can look at the images (lips) that are shown there:
http://www.albinoblacksheep.com/tutorial/lipsync
http://www.toonboomtutorials.com/2008/manual-lip-synch-toon-boom-tutorial/
So the mouth moves synchronous to voice volume.
The other parts like eyes or arms, legs or anything that the figure has on it's body can be animated by random.
This will make it look like a live animation.

The button "stand" should make it stop moving. "move" should make the figure to move again. "speak" should animate the mouth to be as realistic and also as general as possible. So it will look the same, no matter if the figure says "oooo" or "mmmm". You do not have to make any audio work. No audio output. Only the animation/design.

You are experienced about flash animating at all and there aren't restrictions which define how the artwork has to look like. But it should have a similar touch like the client's logo. We will send You in PM. It is a nice logo with 3d feeling.

Below, I want to show You 2 examples:
Just have a look at the java duke:
http://www.miamisburg.com/duke.gif or http://www.miamisburg.com/javaduk2.gif
The "duke" is a simple 2d-similar-to-3d construction that can be animated with ease.
The only problem: It is trademark of Java and it does not have eyes or a mouth :-/
Another popular example is the Microsoft Office "help clammy":

Please make sure that the background of the swf is white. So the moving figure can move (dance or whatever looks cool with it) on the white background.

Payment: 1/4 upfront on sending draft. 3/4 on delivery of source .fla
Payment though Paypal (without fees) or moneybookers (which costs fees for us - will be deducted).

If You are seriously interested in the job, lets know and we will send You the logo for that You can make a rouch draft. So we can see how the artwork will become before starting swf work already.

If You are not experienced with flash and flash designing/animating, this job is not for You. Only experts, please.
We will choose the best bid (low costs and short delivery time).

Quick delivery comes always with bonus payment by our clients.

The regular max budget will be 60$ (20$ upfront) and 3 days.

Good luck

PS: Do not load it as a video!!! It has to be a flash animation and not a video playback swf. (Videos do only animate one movement which is always the same. But our animation will be cooler and move by random like a living character.)
