Here’s the Beamer template I had created for my GF a while ago.
It uses XeLaTeX to compile as I had selected the Frutiger Serif font for the presentation, this can however be easily changed.
Update 2014-03-22: The TeX file in the following zip was updated to include a progressbar in the footer:
During the first compilation run the total number of slides for the progressbar is not known so LaTeX complains. Just have it run through, in the second run the errors should be gone. This example was also prepared for the Frutiger Serif so you may need to update it in case these fonts are not available on your computer.
