I'm creating visual effects using After Effects and Cinema 4D. I invite you to learn these softwares with me, in the way which I've started - just making something cool looking and learning important tools which are useful for motion design and video editing in general.

And I'll be happy to share with you all my knowledge while making something cool from nothing :)
