  2. i,
    Congratulations for your blog!

    My name is Ricardo and I'm a motion graphic designer in São Paulo, Brasil.
    I would like to study abroad. Although I've got maximum 3 months for my studies.
    Do you know any short term course in visual effects or motion graphics?

    Thank you for your attention.
    Best regards, Ricardo.
