TouchDesigner Creative Developer

Remote - London Based Company
We have an active brief to create an interactive retail installation which we require freelance development assistance with.
Start Date: ASAP
End Date: 6th November
Rate: Up to £425 per day 
Project outline 
The planned experience is still in creative development, but will be seeking to utilise Kinect interaction to place users in a composited scene made up of multiple video, 3D and particle layers, with some gesture based interaction and events with those layers.
Content will be provided in agreed formats by our in house 3D team. 
The application will also need to be able to take a short video clip or still photo and offload to a back end API. 
The backend API will then recieve the photo or video clip, store it and generate a QR code to allow the user to retrieve their photo. This QR code will then link to a website SPA which will display the photo and allow the user to share on their social network of choice, with a preset hashtag for entering a giveaway. This SPA will also include terms and conditions pages and GDPR compliance checkbox. No other data will be collected. 
The application will be installed in 5 locations and will need to run unsupervised for a period of up to 2 months so experience with optimising for a long term kiosk style deployment would be useful.
