Congratulations to Greyscalegorilla founder Nick Campbell for his recognition as one of the top creatives and technologists.
StudioDaily honors Nick Campbell as a 2018 StudioDaily 50 honoree. The list includes fifty of the top executives, independents, specialists, and technologists in the creative industry.
“The annual StudioDaily 50 honors professionals across the full range of our industry who create, innovate and interact in groundbreaking, envelope-expanding ways every day. It’s our honor to recognize Nick Campbell for [his] invaluable technical and creative contributions to the media industry.” – Bryant Frazer, editor of StudioDaily.
Campbell is recognized for his candid teaching style, which helped turn Greyscalegorilla into the top resources for the motion design and 3D community. Campbell and his collaborators have collectively created hundreds of online tutorials, Cinema 4D and motion design tools, and industry leading training.
StudioDaily also recognized fellow Cinema 4D artist and educator Julia Siemón, motion graphics industry professional who specializes in design direction and creative support for commercial and broadcast clients.
“Julia and Nick are two incredible Cinema 4D artists whose respective work consistently pushes the boundaries in 3D motion graphics design. They are both well deserving of today’s industry recognition for their work, but even more so for their contributions to the Cinema 4D community as a whole.
As guest artist presenters at our NAB booth, they once again extend their generosity by sharing tips and techniques to inspire the next generation of 3D artists.” – Paul Babb, President/CEO MAXON US.
NAB attendees can visit with Cambpell and Siemón during and after their presentations at the Maxon booth. Their presentations will also be streamed live at c4dlive.com.

We are excited to introduce Michael Maher as the newest member of the Greyscalegorilla team.
Greyscalegorilla continues to grow to better support the needs of our incredible community and customers. With that in mind, we are excited to introduce Michael Maher as our new Marketing Director. Michael will be helping share and promote all the amazing tutorials and content you see here on the site, in emails, and on our various social media channels.
Michael is a fellow creative with over two decades of experience in film and video. He started his professional career in documentary film, sports broadcast, and live production as a shooter and editor. Michael began sharing his experiences by creating video tutorials and writing articles for the PremiumBeat and RocketStock blogs, which were then acquired by Shutterstock. He transitioned from writer to manager, eventually leading all global content marketing initiatives for Shutterstock and its subsidiaries.
In his time there, Michael created tools and tutorials for filmmakers, video editors, designers, and photographers. Aside from the business successes, Michael is most proud of the industry-leading content his team continues to make. His strengths are in creating actionable and engaging content, and he has a passion for helping the creative community hone their skills.
Michael is a Texas native currently living in the Dallas-Fort Worth metroplex. He began making films at 5-years old with his younger brother. The two of them studied Radio, Television and Film at the University of North Texas, and went on to co-direct documentary films, commercials, and shorts.
Like every filmmaker in the world, Michael is “award-winning,” though he’d rather brag about his replica Michael Keaton Batman cowl and other various movie memorabilia. He once cried when opening a pair of knock-off Back to the Future II shoes – they don’t self-lace, but they do light up!
He now considers himself an accidental writer, and pretty darn good marketer.
