Fires I helped to start…

No not real fires… we’re talking  about spiritual, metaphorical and technological fires… In other words crowd funding projects.

Here are some in which I have played a part.

Cinder was my  first success had it been up to the PR firm the company had hired Cinder would have been called Curve and probably lost forever in the Search Engine Jungle… I  came up with the name, the pitch, the video concept and even the script…

Efoldie is a great invention; I  worked a lot on the project and wrote a lot of the copy on the website. The Kickstarter above was cancelled, but only because the government made a u-turn on their promise not to tax the vehicle as a mobility aid. It later went on to smash over £100k on another crowd funding site.

I love the Aura Visor and it should be delivered any day  now. I had a hand in the name and the campaign and I can’t wait to see the finished version.

A Long Long Time Ago on a Website Far Far Away…

So I’ve rescued my password from Microsoft and WordPress and finally managed to kick in the back door of this my personal website.

Many updates will follow… but before all that I think it’s high time I linked this little site to my Freelance Profile.

I was fortunate enough to have worked on this project… It’s a new project promising to deliver a taxi  service for disabled users. I sincerely wish them the best

Here’s a little something I did

I loved this job and I hope I’ll be doing some more for More Case.

Long Overdue Update…

I am a freelancer, my roles and skills are many and varied and no two days are ever Groundhog Day.

Updating this site, sadly isn’t my one of my strong points so… in a bid to amend that, I am going to do a bit of catching up…

Firstly I have begun specialising in writing crowd funding pitches. I written about 20 now and they are a bit like snowflakes… no two are alike, some may vanish before the morning and others might be the start of a great avalanche.

Anyway I’ve caused two avalanches this week and I’m feeling a little bit tickled about it.

One of them is wrapped up in a 8 page NDA, but the other is here and as of this moment has just hit 57% funding in under 5 days…

I  wrote the campaign, came up with the name, the tagline, the video concept and I even wrote the video script. I wish them best of luck and I’m confident they will smash their target. (EDIT… they DID beating it by 200%)

The other (which I can’t name) netted its commissioners 2 meetings with world leading angel investors a day after they submitted and their future is looking peachy keen.

In other news, I have been working with Lewes based Specialist Language Courses on their medical based language course as producer and engineer. This time I take no credit for the writing, but merely the directing, recording and editing of course elements and of course the audio for the video which you can see here… (well I did the voiceovers at any rate)

The other bit of news this weeks was my Sci Fi fashion guide is finally in print in the wonderful Space  Monsters Magazine… here I am proudly clutching my copy.

You can get your paws on one here!

I have also wandered into the world of memes and I shall be presenting them sporadically.

And I promise I will be better at updating my website…

And today is a day for Memes… I commissioned the first two and created the last  two enjoy…

Social Media I Should Have Shouted About Earlier

Sure I write… I’m a good writer, but that’s just the tip of the icing. I also create captions, spin yarns, yodel and noodle, I entice and enthuse, lampoon and amuse and basically I put words in the best sort of order… Below are just some of the Social Media Campaigns and pages I have created, or spun or just dabbled in… the portion below is just the frosting there are hundreds more…

Trade In Detectives…

Another Alter Ego
The Formidable Detective Maxwell

So here’s a new coup…

I am very pleased to present my latest work… The voice of Trade-in Detective Maxwell. This was a great fun project and I can’t wait to blow the old trumpet about it, but I believe there is a wee bit of an embargo on the website… so until they go fully public so all I can tell you right now is it’s going to raise some eyebrows… So if you’ve never read a website’s Terms and Conditions before, then I firmly recommend you start with these…

I’ll cut the cloak and dagger act as soon as I can…

So the Webite has gone live… Please have a look at…
