Student reviews
I knew that working with video and animation is interesting, but after completing the adobe after effects online course, I realized how exciting it is and not as difficult for an ordinary user as it seemed. Now it will be much easier for me to work with graphics.
Charles Boyd
I liked the adobe after effects training very much. The guys teach very essential practical things - in particular, how to use the tools, without which it would be gloomy to work in animation. Many problematic questions have been resolved and now I know well where to look for answers in the future. I, however, lagged behind with my homework - during the course, I got my first paid order.

Thanks to your after effects classes, my childhood dream has come true - to become an animator! I entered the course with zero knowledge. Of course, sometimes it was difficult and sometimes very difficult. But just recently I was hired for the job of my dreams - as an animator of computer games!
