Jigsaw will be hosting free events in both London and Manchester this month showcasing Maxon's Cinema 4D.

The training events in central London on Thursday 21 October, and in Manchester on Thursday 28 October, aim to give anyone working in 3D animation an introduction to the groundbreaking software which was used to make films such films as Spider-Man 3 and The Dark Knight.

Those attending can find out hints, tips and tricks from the team and learn about everything from title sequences to MoGraph animations as well as have a working lunch with the experts while they answer any questions.
Appearing on each day will be Jigsaw’s Elliott Smith and Maxon's Managing Directors, Luke and Liam Stacy.
"We wanted to give everyone a chance to see what this amazing piece of kit can do and so decided to have two events. Not everyone finds it easy to get to Central London for an early start so we thought Manchester would be a great alternative," said Elliott Smith from Jigsaw’s 3D team.
