Great Advanced Cinema 4D Class

I wanted to thank everyone who came out for the Advanced Cinema 4D class I taught this past weekend at BAVC. As usual, I met some new people and got to see some familiar faces. Thanks to Mike for coming all the way from Tennessee and Steven for coming up from LA (again!)

We had fun covering xpresso, bodypaint, thinking particles and rigging!
