We are trying to make a DVD type program on a CD. The purpose of the program is a study aid for students in the US who have to take the SAT college entrance exams. The program simulates the actual test day environment complete with the classroom, other students, proctor, and real life distractions. To get an idea for what this product is like, please take a look at this link which is a product currently on the market:

As you can see, its a CD with a DVD program. Users can select to 'play the movie' which will start from the beginning of the test all the way until the end with sections in between. During this movie, real life distractions and sounds are played. There is also a 'scene selection' menu on the DVD menu home page where you can jump to certain sections of the movie, which corresponds to certain sections of the test. So in the example of the LSAT proctor, the LSAT test has 5 sections so the program will have 5 different scenes. Each scene has its own distractions. The reason why the distractions are such an important part of the program is it trains the user to deal with it as they take practice tests. This helps them increase focus during their real test day.
We intend to create a better version of this program. Our intended upgrades may require more advanced skills than simple DVD making which is why we believe a multimedia software engineer will be needed.
For this project, we will give you a copy of the current product out already on the market so you get a better idea of what it is like. We'll provide you all of the movie files we shoot of the simulated test taking. You will need to compile the files we give you onto a CD and then also implement the features we want.
Skills that will be necessary are probably multimedia software engineering. Experience working with movie files and making simple programs will also be helpful. Thanks for looking.
