Where Did The Reflection Channel Go In R16?

Closed: Huge Mustache


More Than Just a Silly Theme

I’m growing a mustache in November to kill cancer. Well, it’s not quite that simple. I actually need your help. (Not with the mustache. I got that covered.) I need you help by donating to prostate and testicular cancer initiatives. Click here to learn more about Movember and pledge. But before you do that…

I WILL DOUBLE YOUR PLEDGE!
My mother in law beat breast cancer this year and is fighting leukemia. So, for every dollar I raise for Movember, I will double your pledge and donate an equal amount to Breast Cancer Research Foundation.

So, what are you waiting for? Head over and pledge for the ladies and the gentlemen in your life at the same time. Meanwhile, I’ll get back to this mustache. Anybody have any wax?

      You can see that on the “Submissions and rules page”, right next to where it says “submit your video”.

  5. Hey Nick, I’ve been searching about this fluid simulation, but I couldn’t find a tutorial about it, so I thought you could do one and show us something more about fluids in cinema 4d

    great theme and a good cause nick,

    my submission to the last 5 second project was created from my hospital bed whilst undergoing my 12th round of cancer treatment, it was a great distraction from what was going on around me and a HUGE boost when it was announced that i’d won.

    am nearly done with my entry for this competition and will post over the next day or two, annoyingly i’ve just had another idea. sooooooooooo, are we aloud more than one entry? (i’m assuming no. but hey, without asking i’d not know)

    keep up the great work

    n.

    This is my second entry, although this time I didn’t use C4D, just Photoshop and After Effects to help Nick grow a mustache. It’s amazing how much work 5 seconds of mustache growing video can be! See my entry at:

  11. Hey Nick, Tell me, what do you think of this one? It was made for a client who trowed a “moustache party” and it’s longer than 5 seconds, so the only thing it has in common with this contest is the moustache theme. I would really appreciate your opinion, it was the first time I’ve tried hair after watching your hair tutorial. It really helped, so thank you.
