    Editor/Videographer/Graphics

    Canada - Last active: 12 days ago - Tests: 4 - Portfolio: 9

    I have been freelancing in video production for the past 6 years and on oDesk for 2. Having worked on everything from corporate/commercial videos to live events to music videos and feature films, my experience in the film and video industry is vast and varied. I bring a high level of polish and professionalism to all my projects and have a great eye for design and editing. Many will claim to be video professionals but can't produce anything of quality or note. I guarantee my work to be of top broadcast quality which will separate your product or service from the competition. I am located in Canada and as such will have no language barriers which could present problems in communication. I may not work as cheap as some contractors found elsewhere, but the old adage is true, you get what you pay for. If quality is of importance to you, the value of hiring me is clear. Thanks so much for taking the time to review my profile and I'm confident that I can deliver the highest quality video productions you require.

    Video and audio production.

    United States - Last active: 3 days 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. 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
