Industry Leading 3D Motion Designer,
Gryun Kim's Profile & Portfolio


Gryun Kim
Motion Designer

I'm currently working at Elastic,
a production studio in LA,
famous for making title sequences.

At Elastic, I've had the chance to work
on title sequences
for Hollywood films and television shows
such as Men in Black, DC Universe,
HBO, Amazon TV show, CNN, and more.

During my time at Giantstep
in South Korea,
I made motion graphics
for large companies
like Samsung, LG, KIA, Netmarble.

I also actively manage
the Korean Cinema 4D
User-Community website
for the growth of motion graphic designers.
There, we hold seminars
with global artists
and create online user group broadcasts
for people in the field
to communicate and share their experiences.

Why should I Learn Cinema 4D?

Cinema 4D is an exceptional tool for solo productions, offering accelerated and efficient software solutions. Now, by adopting real-time graphic card rendering in Octane, even small groups can take on big projects. With frequent upgrades and a fast response speed, Cinema 4D will help you create realistic graphics of high quality.

What are your strengths
as a Motion Designer?

Creating high-quality designs in less time, with a sharp eye for design and a time-efficient workflow. Join my class to learn the most productive ways to solve your design problems, with plentiful practice exercises.

What is the goal of this Class?

The main focus of this class is to help you understand the theory of motion graphics by completing real-world design examples. I've added multiple practice exercises to boost your problem-solving skills in a fun and effective way.

Why should I choose this class
on Coloso?

The concept of this Coloso class is creating space. Explore the many rooms with different themes to help you create content for every space, and experience each design. Unlike other classes, this class offers practice design exercises before going over theories for a process that makes it easier to comprehend.

Who can benefit from this class?

Those who only know the basics of Cinema 4D or have never used Octane Render, and even for those working in the field! I'll teach you the pipelines and my personal insights to help you make high-quality designs with a better grasp of the theories of CG.
