There is no better way to learn motion graphics than by completing projects. Real projects.

With help of this course you get a good grasp of common workflows and usage and learn After Effects in the process!


There are so many After Effects courses, tutorials and videos which take a majority of the time to explain all the features and how to potentialy use certain things without ever getting on how to actually create it. What good will you bring understanding tools when you don't know the creative process of their usage in real-life examples?

This is why I prepared this, project based course - to both teach you the tools & software and let you create real-life after effects projects right away. It doesn't require any prior deep knowledge of After Effects at all - I will show you detailed steps and simple explanations how to achieve things you want to achieve in the software.





Don't get me wrong, learning After effects cc or even the newest after effects cc 2017 version from scratch, tool by tool, handle by handle, element by element is an amazing journey and I also have recorded a comprehensive After Effects course in that fashion, but some of you who are already a bit familiar with video editing, animation or motion graphic (fade in, fade out, trimming, these options are available in every video editing software) would like to start right away. 

This course is perfect for students, who want to start learning After Effects right away, from the animation / motion graphics side. This course will not be optimal for people who just want to get a basic grasp of the software and carefully learn each option before they start designing and moving forward. 

What are the biggest benefits of this after effects course?

  • You learn on real-life examples 
  • Your instructor is an experienced after effects designer & user
  • You get all project files to work along or preview the animations
  • You will learn After Effects fast and efficient, during the work
  • You get additional design tips & tricks on motion graphics

Don't wait any longer... Enroll Now!

Who is the target audience?
  • Beginners to intermediate After Effects users
  • Aspiring motion graphic artists
  • Video creators, editors, youtubers wanting to implement visual effects and motion graphics into their videos

BONUS SECTION: Course Updates & Little Design Challenges for Curious Users!
1 Lecture 06:28

This is a little bonus design experience I would like to share with you. From time to time we have to prepare a design in After Effects that would seem counter-intuitive to make as a graphic designer. Designing in AE is not the same as drawing in Pohotoshop where all the tools are straightforward. I want to show you a technique of making patterns with the repeater in motion graphic software.

Bonus: Creating a pattern over another object with Repeater

Engaged and Passionate PowerPoint & After Effects instructor

Hi! My name is Andrzej Pach, more known as "Nigel" and I spend my time with graphic design, motion & animaiton, typography, video editing and online teaching on a daily basis. The majority of my work is done in Adobe After Effects & Microsoft PowerPoint 2013 / 2016 - naturally this is the software I want to teach about and share my experience with you. I have completed well over 3000 graphic projects (On Fiverr alone more than 2500 reviews) for clients, mostly including video animations like intros, outros and transitions for various Youtube channels & marketers. I would like to share the knowledge I was able to "stack up" during the process. I am always willing to help people out by enhancing their brand and Internet media.

Who am I ?

I am a 27 y.o (born 1989) and a University Graduate (July 2014). A few years back after shifting from one hobby to another after getting hired to prepare a website and business card for a local business in my area I finally "felt it". Since then (2011) I was expanding my skillset in this area completing various graphic related projects. Places like the WarriorForum, freelancing websites or graphic contests across the web caught me in its own snare and never let me go.

What is the next step?

After having several years of experience as a freelancer with a keen focus on creativity handling various projects ranging as work for very small businesses to websites and Youtube channels with over 300k subscribers I am looking forward to share my knowledge wrapped up in exciting courses easy to follow and most important - USEFUL for you! I am looking to work with forward-thinking people who wish to create something original, that will reinforce their brand and follow their vibe. I am always committed to provide value while giving away random tips to make your workflow easier.

Did you really create something?

How far would bring me lying and any sort of scam? Nowhere. I do believe in making the Web Business and Internet Marketing world a better place, because my actions will affect my fellowers, friends, family and future children. Since I live in a small village where people work in agriculture or do physical labor work I set the goal for me to be a sort of pioneer in the web-based business field growing myself as a designer every single day.

You can always contact me as I don't mind talking to anyone and sharing how could I help your business or what course I might record if you like my teaching style!
