M. Amber Nall
Hello, and thanks for checking out my site. Currently I am back at university and taking on occasional freelance work at flexible rates. I will be looking for full-time work in the near future, so this is the best time to commission me for a video edit or piece of writing. Just click on 'services'.
Currently my work is priced for commercial businesses. If you're a single individual with a smaller budget, we can work something out, since I do accept supplementary trade in goods or services, networking, exposure, advertisement, and the like. I am also willing to help out charitable organisations. Just hit me up via the 'contact' page.
I am also interested in hearing from anyone looking to fill a position at their company that they think my variety of skills would be good for.

My most recent position was as a Multimedia Assistant with Bara Barang Aboriginal Corporation. A small company that was constantly transforming itself, I took on many roles and responsibilities in addition to my primary role as video editor: I trained Work for the Dole participants in videography, editing, and social media; I ran multimedia demonstrations on open days during NAIDOC week; I wrote an educational curriculum for Central Coast Community College; maintained the Bara Barang website and social media; and wrote many successful funding proposals. I was often praised for taking initiative and going above and beyond.
Passionate about video editing, I was fortunate to have the opportunities to work with clients on fulfilling their briefs to deadline and creating a portfolio I am proud of. I pitched, scripted, and edited 'Malinga', a documentary show about Indigenous Art on the Central Coast - the first episode was a finalist in the Blue2Blue International Drone Film Festival and the complete series will air on NITV in May. I also assisted in creating and editing web content for Central Coast Health, background multimedia for a NAISDA Dance Academy performance, advertisements for Nyanga Walang cultural tours now shown on P&O cruises, and a music video for Music Pro. All of these were meticulously constructed as part of a small team environment that encouraged critical feedback and perfectionism.
I have strong proofreading skills and type at 65WPM. I have the Adobe Suite on my Macbook Pro. I can code, make gifs, have an account with dozens of social media platforms, and I have had several tweets go viral since I started using Twitter in 2009. I have been an active member of online fandom communities since 2001. A jack of all trades, I also have experience as a Diversional Therapist in a nursing home, an office assistant, a barista, an SEO freelancer, and a Certificate III in Conservation and Land Management, and I am currently studying a Bachelor of Arts at Charles Sturt University. I have food safety training and love to cook. I hope it is obvious from my varied career history, education, and skillsets, that I am willing to try my hand at everything and anything life has to offer, and I love learning new skills.
You should consider hiring me if you need someone who is excellent with communication of all sorts, who has a wide range of experience and a passion for gaining more. You should definitely hire me if you are looking for an employee who will work with you to make your company the best it can possibly be: someone who brings innovation, intelligence, passion and creativity to the table but can back it up with hard work, critical thinking, and common sense.
