Jonas Pilz / Professional Experience
Throughout his love for drawing and music, Jonas Pilz realized early that he needs to take a creative profession.

He studied Multimedia and Communications at University of Applied Sciences in Ansbach, Germany. There he discovered his passion for 3D graphics and created all of his study projects in Cinema 4D. Having imagination as the only limit is what fascinates him.

After graduating from university in 2011 Jonas Pilz worked as a freelance 3D generalist for a period of four years and created lots of visualizations and animations for designated industrial clients and television with Cinema 4D.

In 2015 Jonas Pilz became a salaried member of the MAXON family, giving Cinema 4D workshops and presenting MAXON products at trade shows and other public events.
