Default Tutorial - Training and upcoming project

Hi everyone. It has been quite a while since I have posted anything in here. I am just starting on a new project that will involve an animated short and a major revamp to the game I published a couple of years back. As a part of this I also want to take the opportunity to help build the 3D community. I have been creating professional tutotials, video courseware and university classes/curriculum for many years and I have also done a few YouTube tutorials. I am going to be creating a lot more free content like this to help people get going in 3D animation and VFX. To that end, I have started a new video series and you can find the first episode here:

The series will focus on Modo as the main 3D application along with pipeline apps like Photoshop, After Effects, Nuke, Unreal4, etc and I will be bringing in other 3D applications as I use them in production.

As I get more into production I will be posting breakdowns and tutorials basded on that content as well as taking suggestions for future content. If you like it, please share it with your friends and on Facebook. I also have a Patreon page set up if you want to support the creation of quality free training for everyone:

Cheers!

- Ellery
