    Video Script Writer Extraordinaire

    United States - Last active: 15 days ago - Tests: 7 - Portfolio: 4

    Although I am a academic, copy, content and creative writer my specialty is video script writing- animated, whiteboard, narrated, training and sales. Even though academic and creative writing is based on quality content it is also based on the quantity of words- clients are always seeking a word count. Video script writing requires a completely different process and mindset than academic, copy, content and creative writing. It requires the writer to be able to take a large volume of content and reduce it to a bare minimum word count that can immediately gain a viewers attention and retain it throughout the entire video. The ability to write effective video scripts is skill that cannot be perfected overnight. I pledge to provide my clients with a degree of quality that they will be pleased to call their own. I am self motivated, hard working, detailed oriented, flexible and reliable. I believe that communication is significant in any business relationship. I have found that asking the right questions at the beginning of an assignment ensures that not only will be completed ahead of schedule it will exceed the client’s expectations. My goal is to provide my Odesk clients with exceptional quality at reasonable cost and 100% satisfaction. Not only does a satisfied client leave positive feedback, they are likely to be a repeat client. Each client, no matter the duration or size of the assignment, should be treated with the up most respect. I am seeking to develop long term relationships that will be mutually beneficial for both the client and myself.

    Communications Strategist - Writer, Editor, Creative Wordsmith

    Spain - Last active: 18 hours ago - Tests: 4 - Portfolio: 14

    Every company, organization, and individual has a motivation – a thought that comes into being, waiting for the moment to be expressed into actions and words. Often, thoughts linger on the verge of development due to the inability to partially or entirely transform them into literature; or the hesitation that doing so will deviate from the powerful essence of a thought that could ‘become’. Benefit from a communications strategist who will collaborate with you – from a writer, editor, and creative wordsmith perspective – to create original content as well as interpret your ideas, concepts, and literary works. Your existing communications will also be developed and enhanced to exceed your objectives and goals. We will work together to identify areas for improvement while outlining a strategy for change, and exploring innovative possibilities. Ours is a potential collaboration towards successfully creating, developing, and achieving your communication goals. I offer clarification through consultation and compose to establish literary flow. I am a wordsmith architect whose expertise is complemented by 20+ years of collaborating with companies from multiple sectors, corporate-level executives, entrepreneurs, and others. My sought-after consultation is also a reflection of my inherent ability to ‘engage’ by accessing the feeling of what you are trying to communicate. My collaborations have included: Entrepreneurs - establishing clear communication of their ideas Corporations - helping to develop written strategies Websites - in search of quality content Book authors - requiring a keen eye for creative and emotional infusion Book publishers - editing and proofreading for continuity Business startups - developing the foundation of their identity Marketing companies - for perspective to improving and expanding their message Translations companies - quality English writing across multiple industries The mom - seeking to express the depth of her sentimentality The student - fulfilling his/her written university requirements The executive - requiring beneficial insight and organization These collaborations, and more, are supported by an ongoing recognition of achievements and acknowledgements: "You get me." "You exceeded my expectations." "You knew exactly what I wanted to say." "You understood the objective from my perspective." "Your ability to evaluate, communicate, and deliver is extraordinary."
