Project Description:
Hi there,
looking for an advanced flash/xml coder to help me with an idea i have that draws inspiration from this flash file
http://www.jcrew.com/AST/Browse/WomenBrowse/Women_Feature_Assortment/Jennaspicks.jsp
if you click on one of the thumbs in the base layer it loads a screen in level 1 with a closeup of product, its number, product name, price, and then has arrows for you to click to see the next one, or previous one. I basically want to do exactly the same but want to make it easy to update as possibnle in the future.


i was going to make it all in flash myself with movie clips, load movie etc but think there must be a better way than for me to do it with my somehat limited flash skills....thought it would be better if it was built using xml and external files where possible so it would be easier to change each time, but as my AS3.0 scripting ability is minimal i need some help

i have graphics already made up (very similar to URL above) and can show to suitable potential providers via pmb

so what im thinking is the flash coder would in the end deliver a base fla file with a selection of 13 unqiue movie clips arranged on the stage (not overlapping), in these the coder has placed the 13 individual thumbnails i provide (i would insert the respective images into these the next time)

in this base flash file would be any animation for the screens to come in with detailed product info over the top, and all the actionscript required to communicate with the xml to pull in this content

so if thumbnail 5 is clicked then in fades the black to cover the thumbs, then in fades overlaying white screen and the larger product image 5 along with product 5 name, price etc
basically exactly the same functionality as the above URL

if next arrow is clicked, no matter where you are, either product 5 or 12 it would load the next numbered one, so product 6 if you click arrow on product 5 screen etc, it would swipe to the sisde like the URL above, and load product 6 in a larger view

so in the xml file would the following
the large image URL (these already exist on the web as product images))
the product title (and link)
product brand (and link)
the price

i beleive i will need to place the 15 thumbnail images in the base layer myself each time and not have thumbnail also handled by the xml because they need to be shuffled around a bit to fit, so wouldnt be exactly the same each time...

hope this makes sense, please let me know of any questions via pmb or please acknowledge that you know what i am after

thinking we can do it my way to start and then look at automating even further with a web interface later on as a seperate propject....

looking forward to bids,

other similar high end flash ecommerce work for sure to come out of this, advantage is you know OSCommerce well too as thats the shop framework im working with and have lots of osc/flash ideas! Basically want to push the envelope with flash and ecommerce...
