Cheap screencast app with simultaneous webcam and audio recording for OSX? A few more catches, too...

I am doing a study where I sit folks down at a computer and ask them to perform some tasks on a website. The name of the game here is to capture everything that happens while the user sees only a regular website and cursor with no crazy things when he/she clicks or types and no image of his/her face on screen.
I will record and process all this on OSX Lion 10.7.3.
I need to record the their faces (with the isight camera?), their voices, their screen, their mouse clicks (and scrolls, if I can). (Don't worry, they'll sign a form that explains that all this is being recorded.)
I'd like the their mouse cursor to be highlighted so it's easy to follow their movements, but that's not a deal-breaker for me.
All of this has to be stored locally, and it can never be uploaded to a remote server.
In the end, I'd like all that information to be nicely viewable from one movie file (.avi, .mov, or whatever) with the user's face as a picture-in-picture.
I want it to be sub-$15.
I know Quicktime can record screen/web/audio simultaneously, but it shows the user's face on the screen if I want that to all be one file. It also doesn't record mouse clicks.
I'd accept breaking any of this process up into multiple steps/apps, but I don't know where to begin or what divisions make sense.
Is all this too much to ask?
