Course description

Learn Adobe After Effects in Sydney.

Discover how to add Zap, Wham, Bam and Pow to your videos and presentations! Develop animated logos for your business. Create a whole new world without drawing! Learn how to use multiple image layers for a seamless result. Take your videos to the next level with motion text and graphics.

What you produce at this course would previously have taken a small army of animators, camera operators and lab technicians months to create. But with After Effects you can produce motion graphics and post-production from your desktop to add professional polish to your video, film or presentation.

You will leave this course inspired and ready to add special effects to your projects!

Course testimonials:

  • Usuff said: The Adobe AfterEffects software is notoriously complicated, thankfully the tutor is exceedingly thorough and patient in his steps to help us master it. Instructions were clear, color handouts were voluminous and comprehensive, classroom facilities great. At age 63, was thrilled I kept up (most of the time) with the young ones!

  • Erisana said: I learned a lot! The teacher provided step-by-step notes, answered our questions, offered tips and supported us individually when necessary. He was always very attentious and kind.
