In this 10 part video series we'll show you how to create an animated short film using Cinema 4D, After Effects, and Photoshop.

A tutorial is one thing, but what does it take to create an entire short film from scratch? In this 10 part series we show you how to create an animated short film from ideation to sound design. Along the way you'll learn many essential concepts and techniques for working on Motion Design projects. 

This project primarily uses Cinema 4D. If you do not have Cinema 4D you can download a free trial over on Maxon's website. And of course if you don't have After Effects or Photoshop please subscribe to the Creative Cloud and download them. You will need them to become a Motion Graphic Designer.

After you complete this series you will feel empowered to create a short film on your own.

So what are you waiting for? Let's get started!
