Hi! My name is Ilan and I'd like to hire you to design the sound/music in a film project. The overarching project has been as follows. Over the past year I have been making a film with zero creative input of my own, using only freelancers from UpWork (many of whom were not professionals in the field of work they were hired to complete). I divided the stages of making a film into seven Phases: writing, storyboarding, directing, editing, sound score, color correction, PR/release, and on an extremely limited total budget of $100 hired a different freelancer from a different country for each subsequent phase. Using this format I've been making three films simultaneously. They were written in India, Egypt, and Jamaica - Storyboarded in Ukraine, Bangladesh, and Argentina - Shot in Russia, Ireland, and Germany - Edited in Sweden, Spain, and Belgium - and now it's time for them to be musically scored. I would like you to score ONE of these short films. To give you an idea of scale each script is 10 pages long and resulted in an edited film ranging from 15-20 mins. In my mind these last steps are crucial to the success of this project. Up until this point the people on this project have never created anything like this. This is an opportunity to truly and unironically define in what each film is about. This process should result in one audio file, the exact length of the film you receive, which I will deliver back to the editor who will drop it into the film, and mix it in with the audio. The ideal applicant is simply excited to score a film and be part of a worldwide project. Most importantly they must be a creative problem solver who appreciates the high quality of work that can result from a challenging situation. They must be able to follow the guidelines while insightfully and creatively shaping the material. The ideal applicant is not necessarily a professional or experienced musician...I am far more interested in people with less experience who are excited to take this seriously. This can be done by anyone, anywhere. You can use analog or digital instruments, can bring in as many other musicians as you like. It's all entirely up to you. The material you will be given may seem somewhat brutal, but it can 100% be shaped into something amazing. That is where you come in. The plan will be to show these films in the locations where they were produced. Based on my history of showing work abroad I am very hopeful that this is a real possibility. This entire film is getting made for $100. The writer was paid $10, the storyboard artist was paid $10, and after this step the Colorist, and PR will each be paid $10 which leaves you with $10 - you can use this as you please: keep it for yourself, use it to buy beer for other musicians who help you, whatever. You will be provided 1) A link to a the first cute of the film 2) a short set of instructions that outlines the process just as I've described here as well as some practical considerations such as not using copyrighted music, file format, etc. For the sake of transparency this is the budget Structure for Film 1. Writing - $10.00 2. Storyboard - $10.00 3. Shooting (Directing+ 3 Actors) - $40.00 4. Editing - $10.00 5. Sound Score - $10.00 6. Color Correction - $10.00 7. Release - $10.00

Looking for a transcriptionist that has great experience with Finale... writing jazz charts, and mainly Latin Music. I've written a ton of arrangements, here are some examples of stuff I've written : https://www.dropbox.com/s/tkgzcii54r22yb7/077.%20Eye%20Of%20The%20Hurricane%20-%20Piano.pdf?dl=0 https://www.dropbox.com/s/hd2rf2113txz1r9/145.%20Blame%20it%20on%20the%20Boogie%20-%20Percussion.pdf?dl=0 https://www.dropbox.com/s/d91bqpdiqrohrd4/070.%20Por%20Encima%20-%20Trumpet%20in%20Bb%20%283%20Horns%29.pdf?dl=0 I didn't put a score a full arrangement, because of confidential reasons, but so you can see more or less how I work. I'm very meticulous, and very experienced in arranging and transcribing. I am getting way too much work, so I'm looking to hire another arranger, so I can subcontract for transcriptions... give you songs to transcribe from scratch. You have to know about Clave, 3-2 / 2-3 , salsa, mainly salsa, because we do a lot of this. Or if you don't know about this, at-least be really good to transcribe harmony and horns, and then i can do the percussion parts if needed. Just let me know what you're good at, what your experience is... we mostly arrange for 5 horns , rhythm section, very little strings stuff (but sometimes yes). Let me know everything you can about your background and all... and then we'll go from there. I'm looking for someone that could do a transcription of this from scratch: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=W6GImKWkKpI I gave you the piano part above, i wrote that arrangement for my latest album. That's my band performing it in the studio :) I have a big project to do right now, lots of transcriptions needed! :)

Hi. I am looking for a composer/musician to create a short (5-10 seconds) intro to a podcast I’m launching that will reinforce a sophisticated and modern brand, for a fast-paced company. I am looking for a piece with energy and momentum that mixes modern and classical elements. I would like to start the process off by having a conversation either over this weekend or Monday/ Tuesday (Feb 8 or 9th) to discuss the podcast and how the music will compliment the overall theme of the podcast. I have samples of music I would like you to draw inspiration from as you begin creating music. I look forward to hearing from you.

I need editing to be done to songs. Instead of songs just transitioning into each other, I need more of "mash up" of songs. I'll give you a bunch of example of videos that you can watch and listen to in order to get some sort of idea of what I'm talking about. You can just think of it as a song with beats we can choreograph something to.

Want to advertise your music? I'm looking for a someone who will allow me to use their compositions as a background for my photo slideshow to be made into a dvd. It's going to be the 4th issue of my video journal, accepting submissions from poets to provide short form poetry to my photos. I'll be creating this for selling purposes. Since it's a very small community, I don't even think I will be making a lot of money. I can only afford $6 per composition. 10 percent goes to odesk.com. I need at least 2 music pieces. If you are willing to get exposure with minimal pay, please let me know. I will give you prominent credit on my website and in the dvd. Check out http://framelesssky.weebly.com to watch the sneak previews of the previous issues. Give me the link to you website or blog so I can check out your music.

Track needs further development; as a demo it showcases songwriting and vocal skills alongside melodic arrangement, though the sound is old and needs to be brought to life. As the producer, you would push (and work with) the singer to develop the sound, song, and sonic footprint, bringing it to modern standards succinct with the immediacy of current hit songs! Totally fun here, just trying to be concise. Singer would eventually go back into the studio and rerecord anything necessary. All bets are off - how would you change the track? Open to any creative suggestions. More samples available upon request. Track: https://soundcloud.com/skyestrickler/dance-the-night-away-6/s-gfl6H?in=skyestrickler/sets/demo/s-3N7AD
