        You’re probably going there to escape the heat.
        It’s too damn hot in Chicago this year!

  15. Stoked to hear youre out here in the city Nick. If you ever need a break from C4D, let’s play some COD! Gaming has become our rendering pastime :) Or we can do some motion control tests with our new rigs

  17. Hey Nick! I’ve been looking for some kind of C4D meet-up in San Fran with no success. Will you post the date/time on GSG if you plan a meet-up?

      • Hey Nick,
        There is a bi-monthly event called SF Mograph that takes place at Adobe Headquarters in SoMa that my boss/creative director is one of the main planner dudes for. If you were looking for a little bit more organized atmosphere in which students and professionals alike could attend and hang out, this would be an awesome setting. It’s a cool building and there’s always pizza and drinks for us too :P . We’ve had directors from companies maxon, adobe, and genarts, and yet the setting is still very casual.

        http://www.sfmograph.com is the site.

        It hasn’t happened in a couple of months so another one is due soon. I will try to email you with details!

        Thanks.

    • So stoked for this — whenever it is! I’ve been looking for one of these since I moved here!

  18. Hi Nick,
    that’s great news!
    Can you talk about what you guys are working on? Camera pack for the Hipstamatic cam? With a contest? Or isn’t that even remotely close to it?
    (Seems logical to me, as you are a pretty good post-processing guy and hipstamatic is exactly that :D )

    Either way: I’ve been in SFO myself not too long ago and I loved that ciy. I hope you have a great time over there.
    Good luck with whatever it is you do!

    Hey Nick,

    What times are you going to be at the Maxon booth at SIGGRAPH?! I’m at Vancouver Film School right now starting Digital Design, and I’ve been checking out all your tutorials on greyscale for the past few months. I would love to come say hi!
