I've recently thought I should give Cinema 4D a try because I saw a bunch of great tutorials at Greyscalegorilla's blog. This animation - the first that I've made in C4D - is also based on one of them, which teaches you how to use subpolygonal displacements. Because I'm fairly new to 3d animation, the whole scene is pretty simple, but I tried to spice it up a bit in After Effects with the typographycal elements and such.
Cinema 4D for the 3d animation,
AfterFX for compositing,
Sony Vegas/Reason for sound design.
