   Hello. My name is Vadim Daschinsky. And yes – I’m living in the depths of Russia. Working in the advertising department of local TV, I gained quite a good knowledge of video editing and motion graphics software, so now I'm making animated video tutorials in which funny cartoon creatures in simple and accessible manner tell about various computer programs.

  I’m making cartoons too. In Russia my cartoons and my tutorials are quite popular. I can say that they have grown up a whole generation of young animators. So now I want to try to make these lessons in English. I hope my English is not too terrible. And I hope my lessons will be useful for you.

   If you have any interesting ideas on creating of exciting animated video - write to me. Maybe we'll make some cartoons together.
