Boy have I been on quite the adventure with Cinema 4D. And boy do I have a lot of good, and bad things to say about the MoGraph industry.
People = great
Experience gained = great
Small studios = dog excrement
For people new to the MographWorld, I have some tips.
Almost everything in my reel was accomplished by myself alone. The smaller studios are really struggling to find solid talent, so that generally put me in command of doing everything. Most, and there are many, of the studios I have worked at, I was essentially the only guy doing 3d MoGraph... they failed monetarily, gargling on blood in this quasi-operational, complete shutdown state of being with mountainous amounts of debt.
If there are any new folks reading this, don't accept an offer from smaller studios trying to become relevant, odds are they won't be. I can't tell you how many of these studios are continually trying to be the next Troika, Mill, Psyop, BrandNewSchool, etc. The hubris is a joke, and people in leadership positions often times don't belong there.
Instead look into agency jobs, freelance, corporations with internal creative teams. <- I wish someone told me this day one.
I'm curious what everyone's experience was, and of course, if you think my reel was a little sexy.
