Video and audio production.

United States - Last active: 2 days ago - Tests: 3 - Portfolio: 13

Hi, I'm Jon Simpson - thank you for visiting my profile. I am a multi-media artist and producer that specializes in creating across a broad range of visual, audio and conceptual contexts. Since earliest memory I have been very diversely creative and I am now utilizing a wide array of professional design tools that channel that ever-expanding experience within the digital realm. As a "generalist" artist I seek to master and stay current with each software tool, not merely to maintain cutting edge capability, but also to maximize and expand the creative options available to myself and my clients. My primary video/2D animation software is Adobe After Effects (5 years), which is now integrated with and partnering with Maxon's Cinema 4D, my 3D software. I am currently ranked in the top 20 out of more than 6,000 on the oDesk After Effects skills test, and in the top 2 percentile on the basic English skills test. For audio, I have been producing in Adobe Audition for over 10 years, everything from music composition (5 instruments across diverse genres, including full symphonic orchestration), to managing multi-language voice overs, world-class singers, genuine foley sound effects, podcasts, instructional courses, children's stories and more: http://www.reverbnation.com/AvalonStudios I also have more than 7 years of experience in Photoshop and Flash and over 3 years with Illustrator, Camtasia and Cinema 4D. Educationally, I have a Bachelor's degree in philosophy from the University of North Florida with subsequently highly developed critical writing skills, able to help you with scripts, articles, copy, editing and much more. I am in the -5 GMT time zone but as I am willing to accommodate any time zone and schedule, my availability is very flexible and generous. Contract-wise, I enjoy doing various kinds of projects but I am also interested in developing long-term relationships in more specific contexts with individuals and organizations I resonate with. Please enjoy examples of my work in my oDesk portfolio, read client reviews, and feel free to contact me, even if you just have questions and want to explore possibilities. I look forward to the opportunity of creating with you! Jon

United States - Last active: 4 days ago - Tests: 15 - Portfolio: 27

James W. Steury is a freelance writer who enjoys keyboard shortcuts, good pens, tea, and cranking out 2,000 words a day. When he’s not pounding away on his mechanical keyboard he’s usually walking around town searching for inspiration or at the library wishing it had a more extensive science fiction collection. His life goals include deadlifting twice his body weight, owning the complete twenty volume Oxford English Dictionary, and writing more than Didymus Chalcenterus. He prefers cats over dogs, Star Trek over Star Wars, and the company of his wife over all else.

France - Last active: 1 day ago - Tests: 10

Experienced French native translator and writer, I am looking to work with you on translation, writing, blogging and proofreading projects. I am bilingual French-English. I have been working in English for the past three years and I have lived in four different countries, as well as travelled around the world for the past year. I am now starting a career as a freelancer, in the hope of becoming a digital nomad. I am currently based in France. I am currently writing regularly for two travel websites, besides my own travel blog. In the past, I have worked for three years as a technical translator in a publishing company, where I was promoted in a year as Translation Coordinator. I translated university manuals from French to English and English to French in various fields (chemistry, physics, electronics, geography, maths, medicine...), all the while managing a team of 20 translators and their projects and reviewing the quality of their work. I have also worked in three different French publishing companies, working on book layouts, proofreading, copyediting, working on illustrations and equations, writing various documents and so on. Two of those companies were focusing on literature, while the last one was scientific. I am a prolific travel blogger and my blog has become one of the most influential French travel blogs. I can write blog articles and provide content (articles, interviews, series, photography, video) related to travel and tourism in French and English. I have two masters, one in publishing and one in political science. Please let me know how I can help you on your different projects and if you have any questions. I value communication and will be fully available by email and Skype for future projects. I work as a fulltime freelancer and can dedicate the time and attention needed to successfully bring about your various projects.

Multi-Media Journalist, Writer, and Artist

United States - Last active: 27 days ago - Tests: 4

I'm a professional multi-media journalist who can write, edit, research, produce, and design high-quality content on almost any topic and for any medium. From creating blog and social media posts to complete marketing communications plans, I have worked with clients including university programs, acupuncturists, chefs, commercial painters, e-commerce sites, news sites and forums, and more. I do not compromise my high ethical standards. Sorry, but I do not accept jobs that involve "ghostwriting" without credit, "spinning" and stealing others' copyrighted work, or other shady practices. What you get with me is a passionate, hard-working, detail-oriented, mass communications expert. What you do not get is someone who will rush the job or be a mindless "yes man" -- if I accept a job then I am committing to give you my best work effort, and that includes sometimes offering suggestions or advice -- getting you the final product you NEED, not just the one you think you want. I generally do not do Skype interviews or meetings for any projects paying less than $1,000. I am happy to answer any questions through ODesk or email, and I am happy to do a trial period for any ongoing positions. Sorry, but the reason I choose to do online freelancing is to make my own schedule and work in my pajamas; if you can't deal with that then best of luck finding someone who is a better fit for you.
