changing a static site to a dynamin site

I am looking to update a static html site for a media production company into a dynamic site which uses a back-end database. Ideally the new site should allow non-technical staff to change the copy of pages and upload new photos/images/video and possibly create new pages.
I know html and css, but have no previous experience of dynamic websites so this project will be a steep learning curve.
I have looked into the various ways of doing this and have come to the conclusion that PHP and MySQL could be the way to go. I would welcome anyones thoughts,opinions and words of wisdom on whether using Dreamweaver for this project would be a good way to go.
Also I have seen that flash is able to work with databases so I also wondered whether this could be another option?

Hey, php and mysql is a great choice for a dynamic system. You may want to look into some FREE pre-exisitng Content Management Systems that are out there, before you go and try to code it yourself. A couple systems are:
wordpress - typically for bloggers, but ive seen it used as a full CMS
