    Video and audio production.

    United States - Last active: 1 day ago - Tests: 3 - Portfolio: 19

    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: 15 days ago - Tests: 4 - Portfolio: 11

    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.

    Trinidad and Tobago - Last active: 2 days ago - Tests: 3 - Portfolio: 4

    I am a multi-talented creative thinker with an academic twist. I have always loved art and writing but I studied Psychology and Economics at University instead. I started my career tutoring young adults as well as children with special needs and only recently returned to my love of art by taking courses in Graphic Design. All of this means that I can draw from many different sources of experience to produce excellent results in a host of different fields. I look forward to working with you!

    Freelance Writer/Extreme Researcher

    United States - Last active: 17 days ago - Tests: 1 - Portfolio: 2

    I am a freelance writer and contract Private Investigator with extreme research skills. My work as a Private Investigator has been a great benefit to my writing. I am able to think outside the box and see the whole picture. As well, Private Investigators are required to think on their feet. You have to create stories (pretext) every day, all day. With this in mind, I can create content on any and all subjects from interviews, or individual research. I am not limited to writing on specific topics. I can write on any topic assigned.
