I am doing a presentation at a conference and instead of a dull PowerPoint presentation, I would like a whimsical flash (or other animated) presentation.
I just want to use some stick figures and some pretty simple 3-d boxes (some with text in them, if possible).
I will provide script and storyboard.
I need it to pause (as indicated in script) so I can explain certain things in detail, then "hit a button" to continue.
Ideally, I would be able to narrate it later as well and post it on my website as a training tool.
The presentation will be 45 minutes long, but I don't need 45-minutes of animation, maybe only 5 mins. I just want to make it more interesting than a flat presentation. It would include some stick figures in animation loops for a lot of it (stick figure juggling these boxes of text, scratching head, things like that).
Might have some more clever sequences if you have some neat ideas. I pretty much know what I want, but am very open to collaboration and artisitc license.
One thing that will be important will be the title sequnce, which I'd like in a 20-30 second loop. People will be walking by and I want something that will stand out as interesting (black and white stick figures juggling will be very eye catching compared to static PPT title slides.
Prefer it to run full screen.

I have uploaded 3 examples of what I want to do. You will immediately see that I am not an artist! Right now, I'm thinking there will be between 12-15 of this little effects. I'm not trying to make a complete movie, just make the presentation more interesting and visually appealing. Your input will be enthusiastically considered. I will try to complete the storyboard soon and upload it with the script.
I need it to run on a Windows machine, but it can be Flash, Silverlight, or something else.
