Timer – productivity quicktip

Timer – productivity quicktip

There are many time tracking apps and what not, but for me personally i find it very helpful to just set a timer and a small goal. Its kinda like the pomodoro technique. I’ll ussually use 25min timers, and go: “i will do these 3 points of revisions in the next 25 minutes”. I also do the same thing for breaks.

Ultimate #Bony4D Cinema4D Character rig!

Fully rigged #Bony4D character for cinema 4D   Check out the new Beefy Rig for cinema4D. When i released the first one i wasn’t that good at rigging, and had Brett Do it, but since them ive improved a lot, and developed my own style of rigging, and even taught Maria how to do it too. So i decided beefy deserves to be ri-rigged in the Ace5 studios way. So here it is, enjoy!   Hint: Bind “reset psr” to an easy shortcut if you haven’t yet

Should i work for free?

This is a question that comes up a lot, and recently came up on a FUTUR livestream with Gary Vee. As always the answer is: “it depends”. Some people think the answer should be a hard no. Others think it’s not such a bad thing. I think the answer to this is pretty simple. If you want to do free work to get your name out there, pick the client yourself. Offer your services to a charity or any nonprofit organization that you care about. Or even if it’s a for profit organization, do it for
