    Hi, My name is Ashley, I'm very skilled in creating presentations and making videos from scratch. You give me the information that I need to make it, and it will be done for you above and beyond your expectations. I'm an excellent writer. I write poems frequently, and I can type 48 words per minute. I can create videos from scratch using Microsoft PowerPoint and turn it into WMA, or even create a vibrant, fun, creative presentation including animations, sounds, and pictures. In High School, I was in Yearbook Club which gave me skills on Article writing and how to create exciting spreads that cover various topics. I was also in a computer class which required several typing assignments (most of which needed fast typing skills). I wrote many different pieces that covered a wide variety of subjects and consisted of anywhere from 3 to 5 full pages of single-spaced writing. I'm very quick paced in using a keyboard. I can do basically anything you want even if it takes the most basic means of getting the job done. I can do it all!

    2D Flash Animator / Filmmaker

    United States - Last active: 3 months ago - Tests: 1 - Portfolio: 8

    As a Flash Animator, I always start an animation with a story. Sometimes, a story does not immediately come to mind; it requires inspiration. Where I find this source comes from the experiences I witness during my daily life. As I write them down to form potential concepts for a story, I allow them to mature. Once the story is fleshed out, the animation begins. Please note that I will only work on animation that involves a story: music videos, short story films, episodes, etc. I will NOT work with explainer, whiteboard, or any advertising videos.
