How to use our tools

Daniel Gies shares tips and tricks on how to use e→d films' tools



"e→d films’ tutorials motivated me to create 2D characters that look 3D in After Effects. They helped me to tackle my animated film within 5 months, from the first sketch to the last piece of sound."

"Before starting my graduation film I was inspired by the character animation of one of my favourite artists, Daniel Gies. I love all his work and watched many e→d films tutorials before and while making my film."

"We have been following e→d films for quite some time, as we are big fans of the techniques e→d comes up with. The tutorials were very useful and without them we couldn't have finished the film!"

"My favourite thing about e→d films is that they create indescribably beautiful art, and while doing so they generously share their process to educate, inspire and immensely improve our workflows and final results!"
