Hello, my name is Cameron Hines, I’m from Atlanta Georgia and I love to create animations, whether it’s 2D or 3D. I went to school as a web designer, but deep down I knew animation was my passion. I wanted to switch degrees but halfway through my web design degree I couldn’t afford to. So, I told myself I would learn animation on my own.
At the time, iClone 5 just came and it was affordable enough for me to start creating decent 3D animation. Growing up I loved cartoons and video games, so I always wondered how artist would create them. Now with iClone 7 and CrazyTalk Animator 3, and Cloud Animator (CLA), I feel like animators can now create amazing art, on a tight budget. My goal is to be part of the many artists at Reallusion Marketplace , who’ve made a successful career in animation.
