There are a number of services I can provide for businesses, brands, and other authors alike. Each service is backed by my years of experience and knowledge as a freelancer. Here are just a few of the things I can do for your business or brand:
For brands and businesses who wish to advertise on Forbidden Writings, there are spaces currently available for ads in the sidebar. It’s a great way to reach new customers as they will be displayed on every page of my site, so it’s guaranteed to be seen by all of my readers. Claiming advertising space also gets you a free sponsored post as well. Forbidden Writings has been dedicated to providing insight into kinky lifestyles and living, both for those practicing and those who need references for their own erotic works. If you have any ideas on how you’d like your product or brand to be incorporated into an informative or opinion post, we can work together on that. If not, I’m certain I can create a topic that should be perfect for you. Be sure to contact me for more details, and we can discuss our options.
Video and Audio Editing
I have more than 3 years of experience in video and audio editing. During that time, I’ve worked on video and audio files on a near-daily basis. I’m aware most people use CS software like Premier Pro or After Effects, but I prefer to use Hitfilm 4. I just find the integrated editing and effects interface to be much more user-friendly, with a better-focused workflow. I also use Audacity when it comes to audio, as it’s the industry standard.
The work I can provide for you is as follows:
- Audio cleanup (removing background noise, fixing spikes, volume control, etc.)
- Audio effects (Phaser, Reverb, other things great for aural illusions.)
- Basic video editing
- Animated graphics
- Green screen (Please message me if you’re not sure how to do this on your end.)
- Animated advertisements
- Graphic Interchange Format images (GIFs)
If you have any images, audio clips, video clips that are not originally created by you, I’ll need a copy of any licenses that were purchased with it. If the license is CC0, then you’ll simply need to specify that. If you don’t have the stock images/footage/audio needed for your project, I’ll do my best to find some myself and send them to you for approval before using them in your project. If it turns out you need some royalty-free assets, I’ll simply need to be reimbursed for it, but I’ll check in with you first before making the purchase.
My minimum rate for this work is $18/hr CAD. This includes rendering time of the projects. Video rendering takes, on average, between 1.5x – 2.0x the length of the final edited length and not the length of the video files sent. Audio rendering is generally much faster.
For example: if you (the client) send me a video file that is 40 minutes in length, and after editing, it becomes 30 minutes long, it will take anywhere from 45-60 minutes to render.
If you’re looking for a new banner, a book cover, something for your social media, or want your photographs enhanced, I can provide that for you. I have more than six years experience in freelance graphic design and have worked on more than 200 projects. I can create any of the following for you:
- Custom book covers
- Social media banners
- Image touch-up
- Promotional images
- Customized images
- Vanity photos (Boudoir, Instagram, etc.)
If you have any stock/royalty-free images you’d like included, I’ll also need any and all licenses you received when you purchased/acquired them. If the image is CC0 or created by you, you’ll simply need to specify that. I can provide any assets you’re missing but may need to be reimbursed for any purchased. I’ll send any possible assets to you for approval before purchase.
Minimum rate for projects is $30 CAD. Additional costs will be added based on the work that will be done. More complicated work will cost more than some simple color correction, etc. All of which will be negotiated, and agreed upon, prior to starting the project.
I can’t say I have a lot of experience in voice acting, but I’ve been told I have a nice voice, and I’d like to offer it to you as well. I’m available to be the voice of your audio erotica or any other audiobook if you think my voice is a good match for it. I have a semi-professional studio set up, which includes a Samson Meteor Microphone, and some sound-proofing. Since I also do my own audio editing, I can clean it up for you as well, free of charge.
Since I’m still relatively new to this, let’s say I do this for you at a rate of $1.50 CAD per minute of the final recording after editing. Sound fair?
