You know those websites that a person emerges completely transparent to the webpage and talks to you about a service or the website?
Here is an example: http://cedarsign.com/
How is this done? is there any tutorials on it? I don't know what to type into google to find it.

It’s easy to find out by looking at the source code of the page, preferably with a debugging tool like Firebug.

Apparently you can only rent by the month. I just need one for my index page. It appears to be Flash + HTML 5.

Their rent program is really for those that just want to try it. The best thing is to choose an actor-you can choose from about 30- write a script and pay a one time fee of $199 for 30 seconds.. They will make it in Flash and HTML5 and as a YouTube video and host it for free.

huh- that's actually pretty spiffy-cool... i've never seen that before (but then again I don't "surf" too much either)

I think that’s only cool as long as not everybody has it. But if what the over-enthusiastic woman on their website says comes true then it will just be annoying — like animated GIFs all over the place. :D

It'd be useful to me, because my business is detailed and complex, half the customers I have, have no clue about anything or what they want.
Maybe they can do a 45 second one, that'd be a bit better, 60 a bit long.
