Hey all - this is a contest, not a gig. I will pay between $100 and $200 for the finished .fla file. I am authoring a program called the Spanish Verb Visualizer - it will be a flash .exe (and .hqx) app that people will download onto their own computers as a program. The program should have a fun, easy to use navigation, with bright colors and easy to read fonts. The program should have an interface that contains the following functions:
1- used to teach 50 to 100 verbs, with room to add more
2- a search function to search for an individual verb, as well as some kind of menu allowing quick access to the verb list
3- a presentation of each verb via an image (might be a swf video) and an audio .mp3 file for the verb conjugations. I may also like to animate the text of the conjugation
4- room for the user to see the text of the verb conjugations while they look at the image or video and hear the audio
5- the audio player should have controls on it
People may like to get a look at my video animation showcase that was recently completed - I'll upload the URL to that and attach the file here. I recommend looking at it so you can get an idea of the style I like. I'm open to suggestions but you should LOOK at my websites before trying to submit anything.
This contest is a great opportunity for any of you multilingual people to put your skills to work - ask yourself what YOU would look for in a verb learning language application - something easy, fun, informative, and effective. This is the 1st of a serious of applications I am developing, so while there is not a lot of money in this one - it is worth your time because if you win this contest, I might hire you to do the rest in the series.
I work with Flash Macromedia MX 2004 Pro, although that isn't a requirement as long as the program is .fla based so that I can modify it as I see fit. All copyrights to the materials will be owned by myself.
For submission you can upload the .swf file to your own server and PM me the link, or send me a zip file. Please keep in mind that it is a contest - and there will likely be more than 1 submisson, so all I can promise is that I will look at every submission very carefully. But in the end there can be only 1... :)
I want to clarify: this is only a contest for the INTERFACE for the program - all other multimedia files will be authored and plugged in by me. No knowledge of Spanish is necessary. I am looking for somebody to design the interface and put in the functionality, so that I can add all of the files and text for the actual program.
