We need a flash animation that acts like a simple news ticker to show and rotate multiple "feature stories".
Each feature will have:
1. a large jpg.
2. a title / headline
3. a brief introduction (few lines of html)
The animation will include:
1. Thumbnail navigation to other feature stories
2. previous and next buttons
Content used in the animation will be editable via xml. An admin interface will be needed to :
1. upload/change the large image and thumbnails
2. enter/edit headline
3. enter/edit introduction
4. enter/edit url to be directed to if the head line or the large image is clicked
5. sort viewing order of items.
6. items to stop being displayed after a specific date.
the application is mean to be the welcome page to an entertainment website.
I need to be able to edit its content using a simple web based form.
the images files to be used should also be able to be uploaded from this web form. the images will be uploaded to the correct dimensions.
resizing of thumbnails should result in as little loss in quality as possible.
animation size = 795 x 500 px
the included psd shows how i want it laid out, please note the curved egdes i want the final product to be transparent so the curved edges show over any background.
also note the curved thumbnails - i will upload rectangular thumbs that will need to be masked to give the curved effect and also produce the mirror effect show on the navigation page

please note in the attached psd i did not include reflections or the curved edges on the thumbs, these must be included though
