Hiya! I'm looking for someone to finish off the sound design and music for a comedy/horror short film, after our original composer had to drop the project. Vocals have been cleaned, a number of effects completed, and some music has been composed, but the bulk of the soundtrack remains to-do. The film's 10 minutes long. It's a sequel of sorts to this - https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=zZoiva3DfI8 - although it's more action-based. I'm looking for foley, creature sound effects for the monster in the film, and music. It's a mixture of tension with dialogue between two characters in different locations, and brief supernatural fight scenes with a mostly-unseen monster. Deadline is flexible, but soon would be good. It's over the time I'd allocated to it already. I'm looking for a very mainstream-TV approach - nothing super-elaborate. Budget is definitely a factor. However, if I'm happy with your work I'll almost certainly be looking to hire you again for future episodes in the series, of which there could be quite a few! The film will also be entered in multiple film festivals - the previous one has shown at 3 so far and been nominated for two awards. I'll be releasing it online for free on YouTube, and I'll be happy for you to reference it in your portfolio. The last film has had around 12,000 views and I'd expect this one to get more.

I need a song translated to Spanish for Dominicans. It's important that this is not Spanish spoken in Spain, Argentina or other parts - but actual Dominican style spanish. I am not looking for someone to put this into google translate but to think about each line, and get the closest approximation both in meaning and slang translation. This could turn into several additional jobs.

We are a preschool French teaching company and are looking for someone to sing and record 17 French traditional nursery rhymes. The singer would have an impeccable French accent and be able to record the songs to a high standard making the songs sound modern, upbeat and engaging to pre-schoolers. We have identified 17 songs of varying lengths so the production requirements for each one would vary greatly. We would like this project completed by Easter 2016.

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! :)
