Great Template Sites or other Web Developer Sites

I've looked everywhere for template animations, intros or full sites.  Can’t find what I need.

My client has a financial adviser company that uses a star (lens flare) in the logo.  He wants a animation of some kind where a star (lens flare?) moves slowly across the page while a person looks up at it.  Or something along those lines.  He needs something very upscale and serious.  

I used to use Boxed Art and Template Monster.  Template Monster has gotten so expensive.  Boxed Art templates are way too "busy".

I love www.Themeforest.com , www.graphicriver.com  and www.ActiveDen.com  - that's the caliber of templates I’m looking for ... and the price range.  I’ve spent hundreds of dollars at Themeforest and GraphicRiver – worth every dime.  ¿  Are there other high quality sites like these?  

I love www.smashingmagazine.com , www.tutsplus.com , http://www.1stwebdesigner.com/, http://vandelaydesign.com, http://indeziner.com/, http://webdesignledger.com , http://www.webdesignerdepot.com/.  Any others you would like here?

I'm a web developer and dabble in Flash.  Starting a Flash from scratch would be daunting. I'm shocked I couldn't even find a flash background with some professionally looking twinkling stars

So I know this is a vague question.  I just thought you guys might provide some links where I can keep searching.  

I'll ask a separate question (and more points) for flash template sites.

I've had such good luck with EE in the past - I thought it would be worth a shot to ask this question.

Again - I know it's a vague question.  It's just that I've got creative block.  I've been working on this for months and I'm on my third complete site - one HTML and one Word press.

Thanks for any ideas, help you can provide.

If you are a web designer who dabbles in Flash, it's about time you jumped in the deep end and swam with the big boys. Find a template that meets your needs without the animation, and hire a Flash artist to make what you want.

The economy is still tight and you can get very good animations for very little coin.

One of my favorite sites is http://www.vworker.com/ to find coders of all kinds. Other sites are http://www.freelancer.com and http://www.ifreelance.com/Freelancers/Freelance-Flash-Designers/

Alligator Flash Desiger (selteco.com) is Flash development in a 90% gui interface.
I think you can even download the trial and run it free for 30 days.
