This project manifested itself from my desire for a real life approach to learning Cinema 4D. I decided to approach the learning process as if it were for an actual client. The fictitious client I choose was Union Craft Brewing, a local craft brewery in Baltimore, MD. The aspects of Cinema 4D I wanted to learn from this project were modeling, basic to advanced camera and animation techniques, dynamic simulation, and Arnold. 
There are two versions of this animation. The first video features the original can artwork. The second version showcases an original can design, created by graphic designer Ryan Kurz.
Pulling on a local favorite pastime, the concept of the animation was duckpin bowling.  The beer can personifies the game by representing both ball and pin.
Version using original artwork.
