    Full-time Online Video Production Script Writer. Storyteller Deluxe.

    Netherlands - Last active: 4 days ago - Tests: 2 - Portfolio: 2

    Full-time Online Video Production Writer. (Specialized in Animated, Explainer, Whiteboard, Sales and Commercial Videos.) Created scripts for over 60 videos,15 different video production companies (including 2 of my own) and worked with 3 Fortune 500 companies (IKEA, Ernst&Young, Microsoft, Cisco, and others) to tell their story and spread their message. Today, it's easier than ever to spread your message. Everyone does it. But that's the problem; how do you cut through the noise and deliver your message when dozens of others try to do the same thing to your target audience? How do you stand out, make yourself known? If you landed on my profile page, you probably know that one of the most effective ways to do this is video. And more important: the story it tells, the feeling it conveys, the personality it expresses. A great script is the foundation for a video that actually produces results. However, it is getting harder and harder to find great scriptwriters. A lot of freelancers do A LOT of things, just trying to make a few extra bucks here and there. Not specializing in one specific task. I have owned and run two online video production (explainer animation) companies, worked with tens of other video production companies and have learned the hard way how important it is to have a script that actually works and is delivered as soon as possible. A script that lays the foundation for an outstanding video. Maybe you're wondering: why are you doing all this freelance scriptwriting work, when you have managed entire companies that have created those video? The simple reason: I have decided to spend my time doing what I absolutely love most: creating, writing and storytelling. Managing a company was something I truly wanted a while ago, only to realize it completely stressed me out. I will create a script with the information you provide according to your guidelines or method of writing or I can use the method I have used in my own companies that are proven to produce measurable results in the videos that have used them. Within 24 hours I will send you two versions of the script for you to review and discuss with the client. With your feedback I create the final version that is ready for the next phase in your production process. This saves you massive amounts of time that you can use to take on more projects, earn more money or spend more time doing other crucial things that make your business grow. I will save you a lot of worry and uncertainty and take your productions to a next level. 'Laurens is a young, bright entrepreneur with a clear vision of what he wants to create. He is amazing at giving life to ideas. Doesn't matter if they are his own, or someone elses. He knows how to shape ideas into something that really resonates with people.' - Epic Web Studio 'Laurens has great vision. He and his team will bring your idea to life. There are a lot of companies that make explainer videos, but very few are great at them. Laurens and his team are among the best.' - Mike O'Brian (Worlds' most famous Online-Video Voice)

    Freelance writer and editor

    United States - Last active: 14 days ago - Tests: 4

    I have been writing proficiently for over a decade with experience in journalism, legal research and writing, blogging, and copy editing. My four years of experience in the field of journalism not only left me with an impeccable sense for writing, but I also learned to use programs like Quark and InDesign for publication formatting. As a former layout editor, I understand the impetus in meeting a deadline. Writing has been a big component of my academic and professional career. In college, I provided guidance for struggling students as an on-campus writing tutor. When I wasn't in the library fixing syntax and grammar, I was in the newsroom fulfilling my duties as a content, layout, and copy editor. As an Instructional Technology Assistant at Carnegie Mellon University, I was tasked with writing up reports pertaining to my observations and duties. I studied American law for two years, learning in that time how to successfully navigate case law and other written jurisprudence as it pertains to an assignment. In my capacity as a risk manager with an insurance firm, I wrote reports detailing the extent of any given client's financial options within the legal confines of the Pennsylvania Workers' Compensation Act. Given my extensive writing background, I can offer to: - proofread and edit your papers, essays, resumes, cover letters, manuscripts, templates, etc - create original content - write articles, essays, or papers - research and present a given subject - analyze policy text - offer creative input - transcribe audio or scanned files to text My background suits me for a wide variety of writing and editing work. Whether your composition calls for innovation or boilerplate formatting, I have the skills necessary to accommodate such requests. I am familiar with APA, MLA, and Chicago format styles.
