Interested in a low-cost solution to your production problems? Hire davepoobond of Squackle!
I’ve got lots of experience doing different sorts of production, advertising, writing, and web site stuff. I’ve listed everything I’m confident in actually providing a service for below, but if you’ve got something else in mind, shoot me an e-mail at firstname.lastname@example.org .
All estimates are free for any business proposal, and payment method will be discussed once there is an agreement in place. It IS possible that I may not ask for monetary payment if there is a benefit to be had by working with you. It’s probably also worth it to say that if a project requires manpower, I do know other people that can work with me to help achieve your goals.
Web Site Management
Do you have a web site for your small business or personal endeavors, but don’t have enough time to keep it current?
When you have something to update your site feels more alive and appealing to your visitors and customers.
If you would like to have someone to simply update and maintain your site (to make sure it doesn’t encounter any serious problems due to neglect), you can find a possible solution with a freelance web site manager.
Contact me with more information about your web site, and we can work together to make your online presence consistently up to date.
Web Site Production/Design
Looking for a no-frills, simple, web page for your business, association, organization, or project?
If you need something that will be able to serve the needs of your customers, yourself, or your employees, I can design and produce a web site for you using simple HTML. Not everyone needs a flashy or complex web site, sometimes all you need is a few pages that explain who you are and why you exist. Without a web site, it’s hard for people to know something you are passionate about exists.
I prefer to work closely with a client (if they think it would be beneficial) to get exactly what they’d want.
If you are interested in a low-cost solution to create a simple web site, please e-mail me. I can also help you set up your business with social media outlets, which helps keep your customers in contact. I can also consult which direction you should go if you plan on paying big bucks for web sites.
Have a blog, web site, or newspaper, and looking for a writer that can help you pick up some slack?
I offer freelance writing services. I’ve written critical reviews (games, movies, music, etc), news announcements, articles, screenplays, just about anything that has to do with creativity or editorial content.
If you just need someone to write up an article based on information you’ve already gathered, I can help you transform it into an article that is enjoyable to read.
Rates vary depending on the type of article, the length required, and how much research is involved, if any.
Voice Acting (Voice Overs)
Not everyone has a voice made to listen to — if you need someone to do a voice over for your video, film, or animated production, such as character voice overs or narration, I can lend my voice to your cause.
I tend to find my voice more acceptable for comedic purposes, but I’m open to taking more serious foundations in voice production if you like the way my voice sounds for your ultimate goal.
As a film major, I’ve got all the skills required to create a video production from start to finish.
If you need someone to help you create a video for a presentation, or if you’re a student who just needs someone who knows what they’re doing with a camera instead of relying on your buddy from class who’s never held a video camera in his life, you may consider hiring me.
Unfortunately this service is only available for people in the Southern California area at this time. I can also edit your project.
If you’ve got video and you want to make it all come together, I offer cheap video editing services. I’m a college graduate with very good technical editing skills and can help you with any video project you might need someone to edit.
If you are making a film, all I require is the video (MiniDV/DVD/hard drive) and any other information that would help in the process, like a script if that is applicable.
I’ll work with you to create the video product you want, whether it be for private-use (such as a video for your friends and family), business-use, or just something for fun that you want to see come together but don’t know how to edit video.
E-mail me with information about your project, and I can formulate a quote based on how long I predict it will take, and how technical you actually want it to be.
If you need a particular sound for your audio/video production, I may be able to help you acquire the sound and send it to you in a format of your choice.
If you’re in need of someone to help you present your audio production to others, I am skilled in sound editing.
While most bands, DJs, filmmakers, or what have you like to see their production from start to finish, sometimes having an outside pair of ears help fine tune their production and get advice on what to do is beneficial to their end product.
If you need something done to a still image, I can work some Photoshop magic and do something to it that might be to your liking. Graphic design is also something I can help you out with, and formulate a rough idea for what you’d like to see before spending money on getting someone to make something high-quality and professional for you.
Have a small business and want to advertise it?
I can help you get started advertising your company to the world and get you on a path to success.
Advertising is not a cost, it is an investment — when you invest in advertising, it typically pays off in the form of more business.
If you need help figuring out a slogan, what mediums are good to advertise in, concepts for ads, figuring out a marketing strategy, or web site/search engine optimization, I can help you in achieving your goals. I can also help you with getting in tune with social media.
Have writer’s block? Need feedback on a movie/commercial you just made? Need someone to proofread your written work? Add jokes to a screenplay?
Its always nice to have someone with no bias read your script and tell you what they truly think about it and where it needs to be improved before you publish or try to shop it around to possible buyers.
Although I’m not a professional actor, nor do I aim to be one, I can act as well as improv if you’re in need of someone who does either.
I find myself to be more natural at being comedic than serious, but some say comedy is harder than drama, after all.
I’m sure I’d be able to pull off something serious if you wanted me to audition for it.
As with video production, this is restricted to the Southern California area only, unless you’re willing to pay for all expenses.
Do you have a manual or book that needs to be designed? Or do you need forms for your business to be designed for specific uses?
I can do all of the above.
If you have a lot of information that isn’t digital yet, you might need a temporary typist to plug away at your stack of papers, or help enter a massive amount of information quickly. I have an 80+ WPM and can get anything you may need typed up or entered quickly.
If you’re in the southern California area, I may be able to help you with software troubles that may plague your computer. I’m not a hardware guy, so if you’ve got a hardware problem, I can tell you what it might be, but I wouldn’t be able to fix it directly.
