Half Rez: A Motion Design and Cinema 4D Mini Conference

August 17, 2012 - By 

UPDATE: Half Rez is sold out.

Friends, Beer, Cinema 4D, Food, Presentations, Learning, Chicago, Beer, Conversation, High Fives.

We are pretty excited to announce, Half Rez. It’s A free four hour mini-conference in a great venue packed with presentations on C4D and motion design, including the newest features in R14. It’s created by ChicagoC4D, Greyscalegorilla, and sponsored by Maxon USA.

We may be a bit biased, but we think it will be pretty sweet. Chicago and the midwest is becoming a sort-of mecca of great Cinema 4D artists and motion designers and we wanted to create a night just for us; for the people that make stuff and have fun doing it.


Chicago C4D and Greyscalegorilla are organizing, I will even be waving my arms around on stage as the MC for the night. Thanks to Maxon USA for sponsoring the event.

Our speakers include:

  • Nick Campbell
  • Chris Schmidt
  • Jack Bransfield
  • Chris Morris
  • Brian McCauley
