For this month’s meeting, we’re pleased to be bringing back the team from MAXON and Cinema4D, one of the top 3D programs for television and film anywhere.

They’re bringing noted motion graphics artist and indie film director, Patrick Longstreth, to showcase how he used Cinema4D for a campy feature film he released last year.

Director Patrick Longstreth will take you through his process of creating stunning Visual Effects using Cinema 4D for his independent hit film “Hellyfish”. Topics covered will include previsualization, modeling, animation, Realflow integration, projection mapping and live-action integration. “Hellyfish” was an official selection at the Raindance Film Festival, won “Best Short” at Scare-a-con 2014, and was featured on CG Society.

Check out the Hellyfish trailer

and the VFX breakdown.
