Today, I am glad to announce some big news and changes that will happen for the everyday project.
as you may know, I've been sharing projects on a daily basis for the last 15 months, all my process and assets have been uploaded and shared with the Cinema4D community as part of a big open source archive library with the only purpose of educating people getting into Cinema4D or wanting to re-use settings, setups and assets as they want.
As of right now, I was the only provider of those files and during the course of those 15 months, more than 450 projects have been uploaded on the site and shared with the Community where more than 70,000 downloads have been made from 80+ different countries worldwide.
I thought it was finally time to get new people onboard and ask them to share with us some of their knowledge. To give us, myself included, the opportunity to learn from their files and have a peek into their way of working inside of cinema4D.
Upload Schedule for this week (17-07-17 // 23-07-17) will be taken by these guys! be sure to follow them and send them a thank you for providing their cool projects for us to enjoy.
As an independent artist, the concept of giving away personal research and work with no compensation is a very hard thing to do! and I must admit, I grew up in the days where if you had an idea or a talent, you'd better keep that to yourself so that no one could copy or steal it from you. The last thing you wanted was to give that away to random people over the internet…
But, since then, community have been created all over, and it felt more convenient for people to provide knowledge to help others, because, believe it or not, the satisfaction of helping someone or knowing that you've helped in a way or another will always be priceless…
As a community, my job, as yours, is to provide… to provide for future generations, to take away the painful way of learning we had to endure in schools and give out the lessons we gathered throughout those years, to build a better bridge between knowledge and creativity. to give the chance to anyone wanting to get into this art, a better starting point, a modern starting point.
That's the philosophy I had 15 months ago when I started this project, that's the philosophy I wish someone I knew had when I first got into this art. That would have saved me a lot of time trying to figure out stuff by myself.
But, thankfully I did learn from the best:
