Amazing course! I'm in the process of learning all the features in C4D and getting familiar with the software. This is by far the best C4D course I've seen on Skillshare, and would love to see more courses to help me master the software ;) Keep up the awesome work!

Hey it’s Dave from CG Shortcuts,

I’m a freelance 3D and Motion Graphics Artist based in London where I’ve been working and teaching in the industry for over 10 years.

I hope to share some of the tips and tricks I’ve picked up over the years while working with some pretty big clients in Europe, Australia and the USA .

Hopefully I can help you through all the boring technical stuff so you can concentrate on what really matters… lens flares!…(kidding)… the creative stuff!

Let’s make better digital art!
