Meet your course instructor.

Hey it’s Dave from CG Shortcuts! I’m a motion graphics artist now based in sunny Australia.

I’ve been working in the industry for 15 years, most of which was spent at various studios in London UK (I was lucky enough to do loads of travel as well!).

I’ve worked for brands like Disney, Fox, Porsche, American Express and more, mainly for UK, US and European clients.

I’m now freelancing and teaching right here at CG!

Lucas Mainovo

One of the best courses I’ve watched on Octane.
I’m about half way through this now and wow! This is one of the best courses I’ve watched on Octane. Highly recommend it! ...your delivery is spot on and the fact that you don't spend more time than needed on certain things is a perfect combination. Reinforcing techniques like you do really helps it all make sense. Outstanding job my friend!
