Here's your weekly dose of MoGraph news, tools, tips, and nonsense. We hope this short e-mail makes Mondays slightly less Monday.

More Jobs Posted!

Have you checked out the jobs board lately? We've got gigs a' plenty, and artists from all over are getting booked, hired, and added to freelance rosters as we speak.

Get your credit cards ready!

This is a big friggin’ deal: This Thursday, May 3rd, Maxon will be offering 30% off of all perpetual and short-term licenses of Cinema 4D. This includes new licenses, upgrades, and sidegrades. It’s not often you get a chance to knock $1000+ off the price of an amazing tool like this, so set those alarms!

Blend 2019 announced

If you missed the Blend conference last year, watch this video to experience some full-strength FOMO. Then mark off September 20th and 21st, 2019 on your calendars. The amazing Motion Design conference has confirmed that there will be another conference next year. Tickets sold out in less than a day last time, so be prepared.

Cinema 4D presentations from NAB released

The Maxon booth was HOPPING at NAB this year, and featured some incredible presentations from C4D masters. The first couple of batches of presentations have been made available to watch here and here. Check them out, and try to come to Vegas next year to see the demos in person. Way cooler.

The Do’s and Don’ts of Freelance

Bee Grandinetti went out and asked tons of studio owners, producers, and other hiring-managers what they look for in a freelancer. The resulting Motionographer article is filled with insights and advice from some of the top folks in the game. Way to go, Bee!

Black Math kicks ath.

Boston-based Black Math has been a little quite lately. Have they been slow? Have they gone dark? Actually, it appears that they were so busy doing amazing work that they forgot to update their site. Well, they found some time and dropped a GORGEOUS new reel and portfolio. Check it out.

The Freelance Life with Eddy Adams

Eddy Adams read The Freelance Manifesto, left his job, and soon after was asked to speak about his experiences in the freelance game. The result is a clever, entertaining look at the pros and cons of going solo, and some great tips and advice. Check out the video here.

In case you missed it…

Last week we took a look inside The Futur’s new Business Bootcamp program and revealed some of Chris Do’s negotiation tactics. We also dropped some Cinema 4D modeling tips in an article with a very bizarre thumbnail image.

Coming this week…

Another podcast episode featuring brilliant folks from the industry, more career tips, more Cinema 4D knowledge, and more After Effects and Affinity Designer workflow nuggets. Make sure you drink plenty of water.
