"Wolf was very helpful and thorough on explaining the mechanics of 3D animation using Cinema 4D and has made the whole process of using less daunting to me. I was amazed at how many interesting animations you can achieve in such a short space of time and now I can see what things would be really useful in my work at the FT. Wolf has a lot of tricks up his sleeves which he introduced me to and was a good laugh. Would recommend to others."
