      Thank you! Wow it’s very hard to make a lesson of this piece at this moment, I did it chaotically enough and it 3dmax instead of Cinema4D. But I can throw to you a project file for 3d Max if you want

  6. Hey Nick, i don’t know if you know this already but the winner says he had been working on the project for 4 days but unfortunately lost his file after all that hard work he put in, as a result had to make the project again within 5 hours to meet the submission deadline! This just proves that not only is this guy a genius but he deserved this spot! It incredible work!

    • Alex, did you use any premade models for your entry?

      I’m really interested in knowing how you pulled yours off. It would be awesome if you found the time to make a tutorial or a breakdown for us :D

      In the last 5sp, i was already in honorable mentions. It’s understandable to give place to new participants! Although cool entries. But anyway, 5sp is a great way for experimenting, things i cannot do with clients ;)

      By the way, check out my new year’s wishes, only mograph!!!

  12. Just come back from holiday in Paris to see my clip has made the honourable mentions, really pleased and loving the amount of hits it’s getting :) The winner is fantastic, a lot of work has gone into that and it’s really well executed.
