Video and audio production.


Jacksonville, United States


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 ... moreanimation 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 less

    Adobe After Effects Job
    So glad to have met Jon Simpson. Admittedly, I underestimated the breadth of the project, but Jon felt that he had a personal attachment to the project and it made working with him so smooth. Having managed many employees over my years, I've found that the most important quality in an employee is that they 1. Enjoy their work. 2. Take every piece of work personally. Ive found both qualities in Jon Simpson and cannot thank him enough for the amount of effort he put into OUR project as we proceeded. He's readily available for communication and his skills with video cannot go unnoticed in the oDesk community. Whereas much of the population here is inflated with contractors not suitable for professional work, Jon Simpson shines as a diamond in the rough. Can't emphasize how glad I am to have worked with him. Will work with him again in the future as soon as I get another project. He will have more responsibility next time as he deserves.
