    Brian Frydenborg

    Freelance Writer / Researcher / Analyst / Consultant / Historian

    United States - Last active: 7 days ago - Tests: 2 - Portfolio: 1

    Personal website with more detail: http://www.brianfrydenborg.com LinkedIn: https://www.linkedin.com/in/brianfrydenborg I have almost 15 years of experience writing about, researching, and analyzing complex public policy, historical, political, and international affairs subjects ranging from UN peacekeeping to ancient Rome. My Bachelor of Arts degree from Washington and Lee University is a double major in History (concentration Asia and Russia) and Politics, and my Master of Science degree from the George Mason University School of Public Policy is in Peace Operations, a term which basically refers to everything that occurs in and concerns conflict/postconflict and disaster/postdisaster zones, especially international development, humanitarian relief and aid, and governance/institution building. I can easily provide a quality work product concerning any of these topics and many others, and can also easily research, write, and analyze new subjects. I also have extensive travel experience, including to Japan, Cuba, Liberia, Israel and the West Bank, and Jordan, to list some examples. My resume, which provides more detail, can be found on my LinkedIn profile http://www.linkedin.com/in/brianfrydenborg/ Please feel free to contact me regarding any of your research, writing, analysis, and consulting needs. I am also available for interviews as a subject-matter expert. NOTE TO CLIENTS: I DO NOT DO FIXED-PRICE CONTRACTS USING ODESK'S FIXED-PRICE SYSTEM. oDesk removed most protections for contractors with its new fixed price system so this is non-negotiable. HOWEVER, WE CAN AGREE TO A FIXED PRICE USING THE HOURLY SYSTEM TO BILL in that you can set an hourly cap on your end that will not allow the price to go past a certain point without your permission and action on your end and the system will not let me bill past this limit. In this situation, depending on our arrangement I can work until the job is done regardless of how many more hours past the cap it takes. My basic ground rules are 1.) any contract we make is going to only be the project outlined in that contract; additional work will require a separate contract as opposed to just adding to existing contract to keep things clear, and so that the client rating can reflect the actual work stipulated in said contract and not additional requests made after a contract is agreed upon 2.) I will be very responsive in my communication expect a similar responsiveness in return 3.) I ask that I not be held responsible for a third party's satisfaction with my work since you as the client, not I, have the relationship with the third party, but I will be happy to work off of feedback from a third party for any contract in order to address that third party's concerns 4.) if for any reason you are unsatisfied with my work I ask that you communicate to me the reasons why so that I may address any issues or offer a resolution that will bring you to a state of satisfaction 5.) If your work requires the APA documentation format and it is something other than a very short assignment, there will be a non-negotiable 10% surcharge because of the extra time this style requires. I look forward to doing business with you!

    Jaap Van Hardeveld

    End-to-end web developer specialised in Javascript, HTML5, UX/UI, Node

    Netherlands - Last active: 13 days ago - Tests: 2 - Portfolio: 7

    I love making apps, like my latest project: Rallypoint, sort of like Stack Overflow for private teams, with a focus on quickly moving on and not wasting time. www.getrallypoint.com I can get passionate about perfecting a front-end flow and layout with HTML / CSS and Javascript, designing entire back end systems using Node.js / MongoDB or the good old PHP / MySQL and turning raw ideas into reality. I'm goal oriented and have no trouble constantly zooming in and out. I think about the product from end to end, from owner to user. Entrepreneurship is in my blood. Ever since I was just a teenager I worked on getting better at web development. I'm always looking for ways to challenge and improve myself. Over the years I've gotten heaps of experience in: * HTML / CSS / LESS / SASS * Javascript, both front and backend (React, Node, Flux, Backbone, Angular, Hapi, Express etc.) * PHP * MySQL / NoSQL database design * MVC Frameworks (Laravel, CodeIgniter, FuelPHP, etc.) Ofcourse I'm proficient in any tools that I need to do my job properly. I use Slack, Skype, Email and Google Hangouts to communicate, Sketch and Photoshop to work convert designs from mockup to HTML, Trello / Basecamp / Highrise for project and client management. I've got a smartphone and tablet and am hardly ever disconnected.

    Roman M.

    Best All Around CGI Animator and Project Director

    Philippines - Last active: 3 days ago - Tests: 5 - Portfolio: 14

    Roman is the most versatile 3d animator here in Upwork. It's also not a far stretch to say that he is one of the best and top 3d consultant animator in this platform and in the Philippines as well. Creating 3D feature film would require a lot of people with different skills to finish. The same goes for even a commercial or a smaller 3d animation project. You would need designer, storyboard artist, a modeler, texturer, rigger, lighter and renderer, compositor and editor. Those are lot of jobs to go through to finish one 3d animation project. It would be a nightmare for you to manage all those people especially if one problem arises from one phase and must be brought back to make the proper revisions. And those back and forth revision will take more time and cost than one can imagined. Not to mention some of your artist may have worked on other project already and could not be bothered to do the revision. Though someone can do 2 or 3 tasks I mentioned, you will still need few more artist to finish a quality 3d animation product. Which basically makes him your best option to avoid those pitfalls. His vast knowledge and skillset in a very complex and broad subject of 3D animation separates him from the rest. He is one of the handful animators in this platform that can finish a project from scratch. He can do storyboarding, character design, character and environment modeling, texturing, rigging, animation, lighting and rendering, compositing and motion graphics for TV commercial, film, medical animation or any kind of 3D animated video purpose. You wont need to manage people, He can manage and do the project for you. You would think that he's a jack of all trades and master of none. Well sort of , but he is a very great jack of all trades and master of few kind of Artist. He also happens to own his own studio Shifting Pixels that can take on bigger projects because of local talents he can call on anytime . You may not need him for a simple project, but you may want him to elevate that project for you. If you have a huge project and need a few people to do it, he can also be your one man studio to go to. Services Provide I provide: Character Design StoryBoarding Animatic 3D modeling ( Organic, Inorganic, Characters, Environment or Props/ Gaming ) Texturing & Surfacing ( Organic, Inorganic, Characters, Environment or Props/ Gaming ) Rigging ( Organic, Inorganic, Characters, Environment or Props/ Gaming ) 3D Character Animation Lighting and Shading Rendering Motion Graphics Infographics Compositing Grading Medical Animation TV Commercial Spots Product Visualization Gaming
