I spend a lot of time on websites such as Vimeo and Behance and press "like" on all sorts of content, so when I start off a new project I take a look at all my "likes" to get inspiration.
I prefer my personal work to my professional work. There’s more freedom in the creation process, no deadline and if the end result sucks it’ll just go in the bin! I'm proud of this project: http://www.behance.net/gallery/Infinite-Jam/11131997 Infinite Jam because it got a lot of appreciations and views on Behance. It's a 100% personal work done in only two days.
I think sharing work with others and getting feedback is a good technical enhancer, but at the same time creativity is a personal thing. Sharing work on social networks like Behance or Vimeo is good for ego boosting but it also helps to find inspiration when you’re stuck on something.
Yes, maybe in the way I did it. Today we have different tools, more powerful ones. Some of the technical constraints that we had a couple of years ago are now gone.
Actually, I’m working on a motion design animation for an iPad e-book and it doesn't change a lot of things in the way you create. I think these new mediums bring some fresh ideas and a lot of new possibilities to the creative process.
The greatest benefit of Creative Cloud is the ability to install only the apps you need and download others later, which is nice when you have a solid-state drive! I don’t use the storage on the cloud because I'm already on Dropbox but perhaps I will in the future. I really love the new integration between Cinema 4D and After Effects with the Cineware; it’s a real timesaver!
