This project will be for 1 script, but keep in mind that if things went good, we will continuously need these to be done regularly. Please provide the best example of your previous work and we will get back to you ASAP. The budget here is a ballpark figure ​and we rely on you to give us your best offer. To know you have read the job description, please start your offer with the 'travel'. Thanks
