Flash website & online store (Not in Flash)

Avg Bid (USD)
Project Budget (USD)
$750 - $1500

Project Description:
Website is for a souvenirs shop. Details are below.

Modern innovative look and feel is welcome. I will need the source codes for any work you do.

I need
a)Flash based main site
b)Online store (zencart based) - Not in Flash
a and b above are the part of the same site, i.e. <mainsite>.com is the flash site and store.<mainsite>.com is the store (not in flash).

Phase 1
1. Flash based site
The header needs to be attractive and I am relying on you to develop good flash animation. Following points can be taken as guidelines for the header -
i.Manhattan skyline coming up from the bottom of the header.
ii.Clouds coming down from the top
iii.New York attractions like Statue of Liberty, Empire State Building, Chrysler building and others to appear in animation. There might be a couple other images like shirt with I Luv NY print which I will provide to you.
iv.Name of the website (for now take it as 'NewYork Attractions' – not the real name) gets written in the center with the torch of Statue of Liberty being used as pen. Basically the torch will move like a pen and the name will get written.
v.For the name choose a font which looks like text written by running hand instead of typed font. e.g. This font is good - Bradley Hand ITC in Open Office v2.4 but you can use another font.
vi.Name should be written as the last part of animation once all the other images etc have appeared
vii.Once the whole animation finishes and the flash movie is in stable state – put some effect which will keep repeating, like a moving flash light effect on the header, some little movement here and there on clicking a menu item, etc...

b)The following menu items are needed
ii.About Us
iii. Services
iv.Online Store – Should open the non-flash store website. Details mentioned below.
v. Wholesale
vi. Contact Us
c)Content area of all the pages will have a vertical scrollable area on the right which will show the images of products which the client sells. Scrollable area should show 3 images at a time with the center one highlighted and other 2 grayed out. Scrolling should be auto and also through a button at the bottom of this scrollable area
d)It should be possible to change the images in the scrollable area. Images may be picked from the database or from a folder on the server, whichever is easier for you.
e) Need a good background music, that can be muted by the user.

I like this template, layout wise, but you can create in your own way too - http://www.templatehelp.com/preset/pr_preview.php?i=10530&pr_code=z9u300sl7S3u32ls1jsUn3F85x1A72

2.Online store website –
I am more comfortable with ZenCart but you can suggest another cart if you feel that will suit the requirements below better.
a)Should show breadcrumbs
b)Layout of sideboxes can be similar to http://osc2.template-help.com:8081/zencart_14936/index.php?main_page=product_info&products_id=2
c)I will leave it upto you to create the online store. Only requirements are -
i.Should be clean clutter-free website
ii.Flash website and the store (non-flash) should match so that they look like part of the same website.
iii.800x600 resolution.
iv.Header should be the same as flash site but smaller in height, sleeker. Preferably in flash. Inform me what way you would like to go.
v.IMP: Store should not look like common zencart templates available on the internet.
d)Products -
i.Products are going to be attributes based - Attributes may be color, dimensions, quantity, weight etc. One product may have multiple attributes also, e.g. A toy with 3 colors and 2 different weights. I understand that the attributes can be set on the zencart admin side, but what I specifically need is that, as the attributes are selected for the product, the product image should change accordingly. Some specific requirements for attributes are
1.Color based products – Clicking on the color box should be allowed, instead of having to select color from radio button.
2.Dimensions based products – A list box or radio buttons like 6”, 8”, 10”, etc should be shown.
3.Quantity based prices – I will use out of the box feature as available in zencart.
ii.Capability to upload products through Excel sheet is needed

e)Wholesale pricing -
i.When quantity being bought goes above a given limit for an individual product, then the sale becomes a wholesale and it is required to capture wholesaler tax ID in this case. Please mention in your bid about how this can be accomplished
i.Shipping modules for UPS and Fedex
g)Payment Gateway has to be chosen but preferably will be one of the following
i.Paypal web payments pro
I am open to suggestions here also.

Below is an enhancement for this website to be done later (not in this project). Most probably this will go to the developer/company who does Phase 1.
Phase 2
1.Flash based Custom shirt design module which will allow user to build his/her own shirt by selecting the shirt style, base color, sleeves type – short or long, sleeve color, design to be printed, etc. User will scroll through the various options available to make a shirt as per his/her selection. As the user makes a selection the finished product image will be shown to the user on the same page on left side.
2.Price will be calculated on the basis of selections made.
3.Once a selection is made user should be able to add this to the same zencart module - the one prepared in phase 1
4.Once a shirt is added to the cart from this flash module, user should be able to click on the item such that it opens the custom shirt made by the user as it is in the flash module.
