Say I had the next year with an extreme amount of freetime, How advanced can 1-3 people make CGI by themselves? Obviously movie teams consist of million dollar budgets and huge teams, but what is achievable at home?

Maya, 3DS Max, ZBrush are supposedly used for most modeling, and After Effects seems to be the best video rendering/editing program, but beyond that what can be used? What would you have to use for lighting and animation and what not to have it not look like a homemade youtube blender kidshit?
