Multimedia CV / Resume Project for Blackstone Resourcing 02/02/08
Blackstone Resourcing Ltd is a UK based Recruitment Consultancy. Our Website is near completion and our Corporate Branding is nearly finalised.
One of the products Blackstone is looking to develop and use is a Multimedia CV or mmCV. This will be a Flash document which will be kept on our Website Server for employers to view for each Candidate.
The mmCV for each candidate will also need to be able to be put onto disc and distributed to potential employers.
I have a very basic understanding of using Flash. Given more time I would design the mmCV myself, but we are on a deadline and need the template in the next 5 - 10days to tie in with our marketing strategy. As I am not 100% Flash proficient, the mmCV template must be easily customised for each Candidate. I would prefer a template that enables me to simply amend/save images and text into a .fla file or equivalent for each to be saved separately and amended easily.
On the attached Word Document I have marked the area’s that will be changed for each Candidate as ‘(content changeable)’ for convenience.
Also for your convenience I have included with this document a number of .swf files.
These will be are:
SWF 01 [url removed, login to view] – This an action example of how I would like the mmCV to begin with envelope opening action.
SWF 02 [url removed, login to view] – This is an example of a .swf of a business card to be included on the envelope.
SWF 03 Opening [url removed, login to view] – This is an example of how I’d like the mmCV to look once the envelope is opened.
SWF 04 [url removed, login to view] – This is an example of the Menu’s I’d like included in the mmCV.
SWF 05 PageTurning [url removed, login to view] – This is an example of how I’d like the pages in the mmCV to turn/work.
These make up the majority of the Flash Action we require each mmCV to perform, and should go a long way in helping you design and develop the mmCV in very little time at all. Together with the very detailed instructions on how we anticipate the mmCV to function we anticipate this projects completion in no more than a few days. Each of the .swf files images etc will need modifying in so they run together smoothly in screen size and proportion. The mmCv will need to be large enough to be viewed full-screen. In particular the Areas 42-47 which will need to be clear enough to be read with ease full-screen. This may mean some work on behalf of the developer, but I am told this is more time consuming than complicated.
I believe these can be decompiled quite easily to obtain scripts and images etc. If you cannot decompile these I suggest using Sothink SWF Decompiler. You will also need a reasonable understanding of actionscript and will involve imbedding a videoplayer. If you don’t have an understanding of decompiling .swf files or action script then this project is probably not for you. Please do not attempt to blag your way into this project as this will not be found amusing.
I anticipate a large uptake for the project considering its simplicity. We are constrained with time and budget, and have put this project out to tender with many other developers, so the quicker you can come back to me with a reasonable price and deadline for completion, the more likely we are to use your services.
Please reply by no later than 5pm Friday 8th February GMT.
I am currently considering bids between $ 500.00 - $ 1000.00 with timescales of 5 – 7 days. If your bid does not fall between these parameters please justify your reasons why or else your bid will be automatically rejected.
I look forward to working with you, and speaking with you soon.
