Need a 640X480 flash advert for a carpet company.

I would like a caricature of a person walking on to the screen with a roll of carpet on their shoulder, then they turn towards the viewer and roll out the carpet towards the viewer, on the carpet is the details of the company that will load from an external text file.

For starters I'll need a ballpark $ figure to see how my client swings.

This seems like it shouldnt be a problem, and Id be happy to help you with this, but in order to fully take it on or quote any price, if you could post some more details here, or maybe even better just email me at tgolson21@comcast.net with more exact details, what you want, and ill try to give you a nice price.

I was afraid somebody would want more details. Problem is I've given all I've got. Perhaps some helpful soul could steer me in the right direction; coach me as to what further questions I might ask my client?

"on the carpet is the details of the company that will load from an external text file."

I am not sure about this part but can do the rest .

My thoughts on the text file was to be able to re-use the animation, or if the company details change only the text file needs updating.

OK now I nearlly understand what you really want . Well all I have to do is to look in to some more tutorials and try to find that how can I make it so that an external text file gets loeaded in the movie.... and if u change the external file, changes appear as well.... If you can wait.... I can tell you in 2 days time that if I can , or cannot do this part....

Rest of the caricature and stuff is 100% my kind of a thing and I would love to help you out with that....
So two days?

You won't have to worry 'bout learning how to load from external text file. Simply load text.swf into level 2. I'll create text.swf.
