Video and audio production.

United States - Last active: 7 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

Italy - Last active: 1 day ago - Tests: 31

I'm a 35 y/o guy from Italy. I use English and French on a daily basis in my job as an export sales manager. My translations are always professional, natural sounding, and I can easily handle English-Italian, French-Italian and English-French translations. And most important, I'm motivated because I see translations as an opportunity to improve my knowledge. Short-terms jobs are welcome, but I can also consider longer job opportunities. My main fields of competence are the following: - Websites - Online shops, E-commerce - Tourism - User manuals - Literature and journalism - IT/Software/Hardware - Mobile apps/games (iOS and Android) - Technical - Medical - Academic - Business - Marketing I am also a musician (I started playing keyboards when I was 7 and guitar when I was 14) with a sound experience in audio mixing/production (my favourite software is Steinberg Cubase, with a wide array of plugins and VSTs, and I can work with Adobe Audition too). In my job I also design and edit catalogues and advertising brochures. I can handle most of the Adobe family products, from Photoshop to Illustrator, just to name a couple of applications I use the most. My job is timely, quality-oriented and accurate, and I'm very communicative too. Give me a try, you will not be disappointed! - - - Sono un ragazzo italiano di 35 anni. Uso quotidianamente inglese e francese nel mio lavoro di responsabile alle vendite per l'estero. Le mie traduzioni sono sempre professionali, dal suono naturale, e posso gestire senza problemi traduzioni inglese-italiano, francese-italiano e inglese-francese. Cosa ancor più importante, sono motivato perché vedo le traduzioni come un'opportunità per ampliare le mie conoscenze. Lavori di breve durata sono ben accetti, ma posso considerare anche opportunità di lavoro di più ampio respiro. Le mie competenze di traduttore spaziano in svariati ambiti, tra i quali: - Siti web - Negozi online, e-commerce - Turismo - Manuali utente - Letteratura e giornalismo - IT/Software/Hardware - Applicazioni mobili/giochi (per Android e iOS) - Testi tecnici - Testi medici - Testi accademici - Business - Marketing Sono inoltre musicista (ho iniziato a suonare la tastiera a 7 anni e la chitarra a 14) ed ho accumulato una solida esperienza nella produzione/missaggio audio (il software che preferisco è Steinberg Cubase, con un'ampia selezione di plugin e VST; posso inoltre lavorare con Adobe Audition). Nel mio lavoro mi occupo inoltre della progettazione e della realizzazione di cataloghi e brochure pubblicitarie. Sono in grado di lavorare con la maggior parte dei prodotti della famiglia Adobe, da Photoshop a Illustrator, solo per citare un paio delle applicazioni che utilizzo maggiormente. Il mio lavoro è puntuale, orientato alla qualità e sono anche molto affabile. Chi mi mette alla prova non rimane mai deluso.
