Video and audio production.

United States - Last active: 4 hours 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

Multi-Media Journalist, Writer, and Artist

United States - Last active: 26 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.

Romania - Last active: 1 day ago - Tests: 10 - Portfolio: 9

Hi! Welcome to my profile page! I am in the freelancing business as a professional for architecture, photography, design (publicity/branding design such as banners,posters,logo design) and videography. Mostly, visual arts! I have had a long journey in these fields and my experiences helped me learn a lot about every single one of them but also about other fields through different research and connections. From all my experience I've been showed that I'm also a good psychological analyst and that helps me a lot to understand and create just the thing my clients need and want in the Visual Arts department and in real life. My passion for photography made me change my views and develop an eye for the aesthetic works and fine art prints, to appreciate the light and the beauty of the environment and of the simplicity of the world, skill that also helps me develop in the field of architecture. The thing is, I became a very good researcher from all of these experiences. Beside the Visual arts another talent of mine is in foreign languages (as I speak 6 languages) and with transcripts, translations, creative writing and blog writing. My jobs also required me to do many translations into and from Italian, Romanian and English, especially the job I had for 3 years and a half at CFD&Partners where my bosses were Italian and our clients were all kinds of nationalities, so all the documents and projects had to be at least bilingual. I can use Archicad, Autocad (only 2D level), Photoshop, Adobe Lightroom, Sony Vegas and other connected or similar software beside the classical Microsoft package. :)
