We’re making a short creative movie/(FlashEff 2 story) that will extensively use the new FlashEff 2 and After Effects. We’re trying to find out which are the most important 10 things creative people use.

Our guess includes the following: Macbook Pro, iPhone, Coffe, Guitar, Junk food and, of course, Twitter.For anything that you have in mind, please drop a comment.

    Without Google, the creative process is much harder. I prefer in this way, the tools are not important, either the OS-s. All is matter is how much I’ll like my works in the next morning or after 10 years. That is the process…
