What I’m focusing on this month
I am learning several courses about video editing with DaVinci Resolve, storytelling for animation and motion design, lighting in photography, and a new language: Estonian.
I am focusing my energy to prepare new content for Plantree, that hopefully be able to release by Q2 this year.
