I liked EVERYTHING about this course! The instructor, Laura, is awesome - obviously understands After Effects forward and back. And she was very good and patient with my many questions - I felt I might be slowing down the class, but she answered all of them and kept us all moving right along. The learning space is awesome, too! Open, inviting to be in, easy to work in.

Attended: Introduction to Adobe After Effects
This course was well-paced and very helpful for an introductory understanding of After Effects. It helped me get a handle on the platform (from literally where things are to how different forms function) so that I'm now comfortable enough to open it up and start experimenting. Laura is a great instructor - very knowledgable and willing to slow down to help.

The class was perfect as it was very small and had a great pace! It refreshed my knowledge, filled in gaps and extended my know-how with handy tips and tricks. Would recommend for any beginner.
